Bona Vacantia for the
Public Sector

The Government Legal Department (GLD)
and the Duchy of Lancaster / Cornwall

  • We were asked by a council to locate a sister to a gentleman who had died over 10 years ago. The council could not locate the sister when the deceased passed away but GLD refused to take the case. The case had sat unclaimed since then. We were asked to look at it and we located the sister within 48 hours, she was now resident in a different country. She was unaware that her brother had died as they had lost contact many years before. We proved her claim and she appointed solicitors to administer the estate.
