Please note we are currently unable to process Postal Referrals, Applications or Kin Claims and can only deal with matters by email. Please follow the guidance below for any new referrals/kin claims/discretionary grant applications and restoration repayments.
Please send any new referrals of deceased estates and dissolved company assets or cash balances by email rather than by post to the appropriate following email addresses:
Deceased person’s estates to email@example.com
Dissolved company assets (not cash assets) to firstname.lastname@example.org
Dissolved company cash assets (bank accounts, etc.) to email@example.com
If you need to send us copies of documents, letters etc. please send us scanned copies in PDF format and attached to your email.
Please note that if you have already received confirmation of a case reference from the Bona Vacantia Division, correspondence should be emailed directly to your allocated case officer using the email address quoted on the correspondence received.
