Blanchards are one of the top probate research firms in the country, currently located in Ramsgate. What’s probate research you ask? Well, it refers to tracing Beneficiaries who would be entitled to an estate. This is carried out when the Intestate (the deceased) did not write a Will and no close family could not be located to claim said estate. Therefore, we must use our expertise in genealogy to trace their nearest heir. In most cases the Beneficiary will not know the Intestate, being a distant relative. It is our duty to locate the Beneficiaries, inform them of the estate and begin the process of transferring it to them. You could call us ‘Heir Hunters’.
Blanchards formed in 2011, by Thanet born Adam Blanchard. Originally starting as a small family business of 2, Blanchards has now grown to a thriving international Heir Hunting firm with a large, skilled, and professional workforce. Moreover, we are about to receive national attention being heavily featured on a new primetime TV programme on a major UK channel.
At its formation, Blanchards began with just Adam and his daughter Sophie signing a few small cases a month. Our office was just the hallway of another companies office in a small building in Deal. Over the decade, our team rapidly grew to a now 25-man team and 2 sister companies located in Ramsgate.
Through the years we have worked on numerous cases of intestacy around Thanet and the surrounding areas. We have also worked on numerous probate and abandoned properties in Margate and Ramsgate. This is a process where we are informed of an empty property and trace the deceased’s next of kin.
We look forward to showing you more of our company in the new year.
A word from our Managing Director, Adam Blanchard
“At the beginning I was doing everything entailed in the job in a very small office room in my house. Surrounded by files and knowing my daughter Sophie was going to be joining me, I knew we had to upgrade our space, so moved to a hallway of another office. Though still small it accommodated our 2 man team well enough for the time. As our team rapidly grew, so did our office spaces. We moved from Deal to a new office back to my hometown of Ramsgate and then again to our larger office now housing our 25 man team. I began Blanchards in 2011 at age 44. Over a decade later, we have grown into one of the countries largest probate research firms, finding substantial new wealth for people all over the world”
