Title ResearchBy Legal Futures’ Associate Title Research

During the estate administration process, it’s becoming more common to come across missing or unknown beneficiaries. This is due to family dynamics becoming more complex as people lose touch and divisions occur. You could come across a beneficiary who is unfamiliar to the deceased’s loved ones or an heir whose whereabouts may not be known.
