How are you regulated?

March 15, 2019

Unclaimed Assets and the Probate Genealogy Industry is unregulated in Australia and mostly worldwide. Some firms lack experience and are not as thorough as they should be. Others acquire impressive-looking ‘credentials’ which, under scrutiny, amount to very little.


Heir Hunters Australia has the following credentials:

  • We have internal service standards monitoring, a comprehensive complaints procedure and a clear and transparent code of conduct.
  • Our internal supervisory and compliance structure is similar to that of a law firm. We employ several qualified solicitors.
  • We work directly with public trustee departments for governments throughout the world.
  • We employ accredited genealogists with proven cases and high references.
  • We employ accredited and licensed Investigators with high references.
  • We carry professional indemnity insurance (full details upon request).
