I have instructed Expert Investigations on many occasions for service of documents and tracing queries and have found their service to be excellent. They are always willing to help, and will take on any enquiries, no matter what time of day. They respond quickly and are always willing to go that extra mile to help. If a job is proving difficult they will always keep you updated, instead of you having to chase. A great, efficient service for excellent value.

Trace Reports

We are able to produce detailed trace reports confirming current address details, how long the individual has been linked to the property, as well as how recently and details of others at the property. We have a fixed cost for our report and they are returned within 3 to 5 working days – with a yearly 97% success rate. The reports can be used to locate individuals for various purposes and are especially useful for tracing debtors.

Fit To Sue Reports

Our detailed asset and fit to sue reports provide a wealth of lawfully-gathered data which will give you the financial footprint of an individual, company or organisation, to accurately assist you in your decision making. We will turn your reports around in 3-5 working days or same day if urgent.

Enhanced Asset Reports

Our enhanced asset report can only be completed in particular cases (such as those relating to criminal activity) and we have very strict criteria to reach in order to complete such searches. The service enables us to legally access financial information such as bank account details, mortgage information, credit cards, store cards and loan account details. The report will also include all the information contained in our standard fit-to-sue report. Please contact us for a confidential discussion and more information on enhanced asset reporting.

I regularly instruct Expert Investigations to trace absconded debtors and to provide reports on their assets and means for use in litigation. Their service is fast, cost effective and, above all, accurate. I regularly recommend their services to my colleagues and clients as a result.
Alex Wild, Solicitor, Restructuring & Insolvency Group, Irwin Mitchell Solicitors
We requested the Enhanced Asset Report, produced by Expert Investigations, in order to obtain additional information on the financial status of a Defendant to a claim being progressed by our client. The report provided an excellent level of detail, which initially gave our client assurances as to the financial position of the defendant in relation to the recovery of its costs. The report then proved to be a valuable tool for negotiation in a mediation, where we were able to sense check offers and statements made by the defendant in relation to the equity in his properties and general financial standing.
