Currently being run by the family’s third generation, the firm’s team of Senior Managers each have over 30 years of experience in the field, with each case benefiting from invaluable know-how. Our success is reflected in the low and preferred premiums we attract for our Missing Beneficiaries Indemnity Insurance as compared to smaller and less established firms. Our experience ensures that we provide a full spectrum of services in the administration of the estate to support solicitors throughout the entire process, no matter how complicated. Whether pursuing matters in the House of Lords, or providing expert evidence, Fraser & Fraser has the experience.
Fraser & Fraser has been handling intestate estates in one form or another since 1923 and is one of the world’s most respected probate research
firms. The firm offers clients the stability to weather all types of market conditions, capitalising on innovation and flexibility to enable it to stay at the forefront of technological advances, ensuring rapid and accurate completion of all elements of research.
As a Partnership, each Partner is personally liable for the actions of the company. As a result, the firm is committed to pursue each claim from its outset to final distribution, and where necessary each Partner contributes his particular area of expertise to the full resolution of each case. We are the only probate research firm in the UK to have both a solicitor and a chartered surveyor inhouse, ensuring that the administration of an estate will happen quickly, efficiently and at full market value, where applicable.
Fraser & Fraser is independently audited twice a year for continuing compliance with international standards of Quality Management and has been awarded the ISO 9001 certification. As one of only two firms of genealogists
in the UK to be assessed by external auditors to this standard, the accreditation guarantees that the highest level of professionalism permeates through into every level of Fraser & Fraser’s research and administration processes. This is demonstrated by the UKAS (UK Accreditation Service
) official Crown and Tick logo.
Dealing with sensitive and confidential material on a daily basis, Fraser & Fraser is again one of only two firms to have chosen to be monitored independently to international ISO 27001 standards of Information Security, so clients can rest assured that their details are registered with the Data Protection Registrar and undertake not to use or sell any information we hold, except for the reason for which the information is obtained. You can rest assured that we treat all information we receive as confidential.
Above all, there are no hidden charges or extra costs - once Fraser & Fraser researchers begin to work your case, we will look for all heirs to an estate and provide a full report to the administering solicitor (which in nearly all cases will be provided free of charge). You may have peace of mind that you will be treated with respect and minimum disturbance, your inheritance will be distributed at maximum value and as efficiently as possible - and you'll find that there is no other company on the market able to offer you this combination.
Located in Hatton Garden in central London, Fraser & Fraser is placed ideally for proximity to the Public Record Offices, courts and main transport links to ensure that we are within reach of all the resources we need to work with speed and efficiency. Heirs and potential beneficiaries can arrange to visit our office and meet our Case Managers and Partners to verify our credentials should they so wish.
