Unclaimed Funds Retrieval Services
Products & Services
This company offers to locate unclaimed money for a fee. The money typically comes as a result of correcting a homeowner's failure to file a homestead exemption on their house. Filing a homestead exemption can reduce property taxes. After the homestead exemption is filed, the tax district issues a refund to the mortgage company or the homewner of a partial amount of the property taxes paid last year. The company's fee is 50% of the last year's property tax refund.
If there is a mortgage on the property, the refund is paid to the mortgage company. That company sends the refund to the homeowner who is to send 50% of that to Research Group of Texas as a fee. If the homeowner's escrow account at the mortgage company is short of funds, however, the mortgage company will keep enough of the refund to fill the escrow account and then send any balance to the homeowner. Regardless of the amount the homeowner receives from the mortgage company, the homewner must pay 50% of the total refunded amount to Research Group of Texas as their fee.
Savings on property taxes in future years are not subject to any fees.
Please read the company's contract before you sign it. The contract will determine the rights and obligations of the company and the homeowner.
