A: It depends on the value of the unclaimed property. If the unclaimed property is just some money that has been deposited with the Texas Unclaimed Funds Registry and it's not very much, you can file a claim directly with the State of Texas Unclaimed Funds Registry.

If it's other assets, including real estate, bank accounts, vehicles, or other assets--then you probably should talk with a probate lawyer in the Dallas/Fort Worth area to find the fastest and least expensive way of receiving your inherited assets.
