The residue of a decedent's estate consisting of real property belonging to the Commonwealth,
or subject to escheat to the Commonwealth, and any such property abandoned or derelict,
or having no rightful owner, may be recovered from any person in possession thereof
by an escheator by a complaint in the name of the Commonwealth. For his services in such recovery, the escheator shall be entitled to such fee as
may be approved by the State Treasurer, but in no event shall such fee exceed 10 percent
of the value of such recovered property.
