For heirs

We have been working on probate matters for over 175 years. In inheritance matters where none or only some of the relatives are known, we search for and find the decedent’s heirs. Or in cases where the heirs are already known, we can take on the financial settlement of complex estates.

Hoerner Bank AG is the longest-standing heir research company in Germany, indeed we are the only bank with this core business activity as well as being one of the largest heir research firms worldwide.

Have you received a letter from us referring to a search for heirs? Then according to our research you qualify as one of the persons we are searching for as heirs to the inheritance matter stated. As a rule, this will be an estate that was accrued just a few years ago and the estate funds are indeed in place. This does not mean that the decedent was a customer at our bank. Rather, we will have been tasked with the research in our capacity as specialist heir researchers.

There is no need to worry that you may have fallen victim to a scam letter. As a private bank in Germany we are subject to the BaFin – Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht [German Financial Supervisory Authority] and are also a member of the Bundesverband deutscher Banken e. V. [Federal Association of German Banks].

When we have located heirs, we send a letter to notify them of the accrual of inheritance, advise them of our activities and offer our support. Please feel free to contact the person named on the letterhead at any time if you have any further questions.
