Notice of Intent to Escheat

Notice of intent to escheat unclaimed funds pursuant to Government Code § 68084.1

Escheatment is the process of transferring ownership rights in property to a court when the property has no known owner, the owner cannot be found, or the owner has refused to accept the property.

You are hereby advised that the Superior Court of Alameda has funds on deposit or held in trust that have not been claimed for at least three years since the associated cases identified below were closed or the funds first became eligible for distribution. Pursuant to Government Code § 68084.1(a), the funds will become the property of the Superior Court if the owner or owners fail to present a claim or file a verified complaint seeking the recovery of the funds by November 29, 2019.
