Frequently Asked Questions

What is an escheat law?

In the United States, escheat laws grant individual states rights to abandoned property. Each state has its own laws setting procedures and timelines for reporting and reverting unclaimed or abandoned property to the state. Each financial organization should determine how any relevant state law treats abandoned property.

What is a custodial escheat?

The passing of possession of property from the holder to the state under unclaimed property acts is generally referred to as a custodial escheat. Only the state in which the real property is located can escheat.

Is property subject to escheat in colorado?

An escheat is not favored in law. Any doubt as to whether property is subject to escheat is resolved against the state. Walter v. Walter (In re Estate of Walter), 97 P.3d 188 (Colo. Ct. App. 2003). It is to be noted that the primary inquiry and burden in escheat cases rest upon the state.

Why are states so aggressive in enforcing escheat laws?

States are often aggressive in enforcing their rights to escheat since such laws are considered as a source of revenue for the states both in terms of ownership and as later sale to third parties who will eventually pay property taxes since it enables a property into active use which can otherwise be dormant.
