Bona Vacantia


‘Bona Vacantia’ means vacant goods and is the name given to ownerless property, which by law passes to the Crown.


The Government Legal Department acts for the Crown to administer the estates of people who die intestate (without a Will) and without known kin (entitled blood relatives) and collect the assets of dissolved companies and other various ownerless goods in England and Wales.


These estates appear on a list produced by the Government Legal Department and it may be you are related to one of these individuals and due a windfall!
