FOUR new estates in Oxfordshire have been added to a long list of unclaimed properties, possessions and money.

People could inherit hundreds to thousands of pounds through these estates if related to the deceased person who owned the estate.

However, if a person dies without leaving a will and there appear to be no family members their estate passes to the Crown as ownerless property, or ‘Bona Vacantia’.

In general, estates held on the Bona Vacantia list can be claimed within a 12-year deadline, from the date the estate was taken into possession of the Crown.

You could be entitled to a share of a deceased relative’s property if you are related.

There are currently a grand total of 60 unclaimed estates across the county county.
