LOOK FOR WILLS AND HEIRS

It is the duty of the Public Administrator to make diligent search for a Will and the names and addresses of heirs.

If no Will is found, The Public Administrator must attempt to contact heirs/distributes of the decedent, to determine if they are willing or able, to administer the estate. If there are no heirs or the heirs are unable or unwilling to administer, The Public Administrator may handle the administration of the estate.
