Your Ultimate Guide To Asset Search Investigations

Your Ultimate Guide To Asset Search Investigations

In simpler words, an asset search is a type of investigative technique. In private investigations, instructed by clients, a private detective would carry out asset search. Services like these help individuals, companies, and organisations in securing their financial standing. The main goals of an asset search involve collecting a debt, catching identity fraud, and confirming finances. In life, you might come across several instances where you might require services like these.

Many people try to carry out asset searches on their own but fail to do so. As easy as it might sound, you will need a myriad of skills to locate and expose hidden property and other financial assets. In times like these, the smartest thing to do is to acquire the services of a private investigator. With years of experience in the field, they are the experts in finding hidden assets and can provide you with evidence that is admissible in court.

Below is a guide that will help you determine whether asset search services are right for you or your company.

How can a private investigator help?  

Private investigators have to go through years of experience before they are able to investigate complex matters such as asset investigations. Property and asset searches are one of them

Things private investigators look for during an asset search

When a private detective is conducting an asset search, they are looking for the presence of any asset, which the investigated party may be hiding. These may include properties, vehicles, businesses interests, sources of income or other benefits. However, private detectives only use public records and other legal means to ensure that the evidence collected is considered legitimate in the court of law and compliant with GDPR.

 Common reasons why people avail asset search services

Divorce

When a couple decides to file for divorce, they not only separate themselves from their partner, but the joint assets split up too. These might include finances, property, jewellery, art, and more. However, when a marriage ends on a tragic note, spouses end up hiding their assets, so they do not lose them. In such a case, people hire private investigators to search for veiled income sources. In almost every country, hiding your financial resources during a divorce settlement is illegal. If caught, the guilty party might have to pay hefty fines.

Child Support

When a couple is pursuing a child support case, they must provide accurate information about their finances. The judge, based on this, demands an individual to make specific payments to help support the upbringing of the child. The parents must oblige by these rules and give their partner a certain amount until the child is of age and can take care of their own self financially. However, in some cases, parents tend to hide their assets, so they do not have to pay their ex-spouse. To avoid chances like these, private investigators get hired, so they can locate the secret resources and present them in front of the judge. If one of the partners is guilty of deliberately concealing their assets during a child support case, they might be liable to a significant fine or some other repercussion.

Personal injury claims

Due Diligence investigations

When a person undergoes an accident due to the negligence of another party, such as the workplace, the insurance companies supporting the employers have to pay a considerable amount to compensate for the injuries. The cost must be high enough to cover the medical bills, such as hospital visits, treatment, and medication expenses. Other than that, the mental and physical trauma are also crucial elements that insurance companies have to redress. In a situation like this, a private investigator, on the claimant’s side, can help locate additional financial aid. Their job is to conduct surveillance on the defendant and make use of other investigative techniques to find loopholes in their story. Similarly they also aid personal injury solicitors in digging up real facts.

Now that you know the importance of asset search, you can appoint a professional private investigator to do the job for you. Call now @ 0800 002 9858 or email us at contact@piuk.net for professional investigations.

Excellent service. I have never used a private investigator before and I was a bit nervous about using this service. However, John responded quickly to my enquiry and was so understanding of my situation. Thank you John and PIUK for your help.

I have never used a Private Investigator before and never thought I would need to. Unfortunately with having a husband who likes cheating, I needed someone to help me find the proof that I needed. Reluctantly I rang and spoke to John. What can I say apart from the fact that he was brilliant. He was very professional but at the same time very empathetic to my situation. The job was done brilliantly and discreetly and I got the results that I needed to prove I was right all along. I will definitely be recommending John to anyone who finds themselves In the unfortunate circumstance that I was in.

Great result. Hired to keep an eye on my staff whilst he was meant to be working from home. A day out in Blackpool, was not in his job description. There must be many employers in similar situations as me. If you are, then call these guys. Photo’s and videos paint a full picture. Thanks again.

Having used another company before with no joy, I was apprehensive at first. After speaking with John, I felt comfortable and confident to go ahead and glad that I did. He managed to trace my mother who I hadn’t seen for over 17 years and now we are back in touch again. Really happy with the service and would most certainly recommend them. :)

P.I.U.K helped me trace my ex-tenant who had been avoiding me for over 2 years and owed a lot of money. As such I was able to serve him with the court documents to get my money back. Great service.

I called this company to help me find my father. I must say they were brilliant. I didn’t know how it would work or what I needed to do and was very nervous before calling them. John however took his time with me and explained everything in detail as to what would happen and how they would go about it. I’m pleased to say within a few days they manage to find my dad and reunite us. I cant thank John enough for all that he has done for me.
