A bespoke people tracing service that combines the latest technology and datasets with eighteen years commercial trace and investigation experience.

All trace instructions are accepted on a 'NO TRACE, NO FEE' basis.

Trace Service

Our high quality service will trace debtors, ex-tenants, company directors, business proprietors or sole traders, and locate executors, beneficiaries and witnesses etc.

Positive trace reports will also include any other relevant information found during our enquiries that may be useful to you (e.g. date-of-birth, aliases, telephone numbers etc.).

Reports are delivered via email attachment in PDF format immediately upon completion (which could be within 24 to 48 hours). All positive traces carry a 60 day guarantee period from the date of our report.

Trace Review

If the initial trace is negative we will offer to keep the file open for monthly review for up to three months (longer by agreement). Usually, it is not long before the person concerned registers a new electronic footprint somewhere.

There is no extra charge for the trace review service and a trace fee will only apply should a new address be found. You may cancel the trace review instruction at any time.
