STEP 2 – SCAN YOUR LIST TO DETERMINE IF ANY ARE RECORDS YOU WANT TO PURSUE
There will always be a moment where you look at a record and just know you want to skip it. Some people do not want to work with records where the owner is deceased, or the owner is a business. Or you may not want to go after records where the surplus is under $10,000 or the owner lives overseas, etc.
The big one is if the owner is deceased.
In Florida, you do not have to be an Attorney or Private Investigator to be an Asset Recovery Specialist. In fact, you don’t even need a business license (though we highly recommend you become as professional as possible). However, if the property owner is deceased and their estate has NOT been through probate, then you will need a lawyer to assist you.
