Finding Absconding Debtors
Research Associates has been accurately locating the confirmed whereabouts of debtors throughout the UK and worldwide for over 40 years and is widely recognised as one of the best private investigation agencies globally for debtor tracing. We have helped trace missing debtors for some of the world’s largest and most well-known financial institutions, including banks, building societies and mortgage lenders, as well as various government departments. We now offer the same specialist service to business and corporate clients as well as private individuals.
We pride ourselves on delivering a rapid turnaround; in supplying a fully confirmed address for an absconding debtor, whilst always working within stringent legislation (Article 8 of the Human Rights Act, the Data Protection Act and, where relevant, the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000). Over the last four decades, Research Associates has amassed vast in-house records, databases, and legal resources, enabling us to supply debtors’ addresses more rapidly and cost-effectively than less well-established agencies who often rely on non-legal means.
A core principle of Research Associates’ debtor tracing policy is that at no time during the tracing of the individual do they become aware they are being investigated or know they have been found. This ensures that the legal process is not frustrated or compromised and that the individual is not given any opportunity to hide assets. Subsequently, Research Associates may also implement a legally-compliant asset searching service to effectively locate liquid and tangible assets.
