Research Associates has been accurately locating the confirmed whereabouts of debtors throughout the UK and worldwide for over thirty years and are now widely regarded as leaders in their field. Research Associates has been tracing missing debtors for some of the world's largest and well known financial institutions including banks, building societies, mortgage lenders as well as various government departments since being first established in 1977.
We pride ourselves on delivering a rapid turnaround; in supplying a fully confirmed address for an absconding debtor, whilst always working within the UK government's 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 three decades Research Associates has amassed vast in-house records, databases and legal resources which enable us to supply the addresses of debtors more rapidly and cost effectively than less well established agencies who may rely on non-legal means.
A core principal 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 subsequent legal process is not frustrated and that the individual is not given any opportunity to hide assets.
Some individuals who owe money often disappear with the specific intention of avoiding payment, frequently attempting to hide their current whereabouts using false or altered names, not registering for services associated with their residential address, or going to the extent of changing their registered name (privately by deed poll). Research Associates effectively trace people as a matter of routine, even in difficult circumstances where individuals are actively trying to remain hidden.
Allow Research Associates' highly experience private investigators to explain how we will assist in your process. Note: For legal reasons, it is very helpful to formally let us know at the time of initial instruction that we are locating a debtor, as we are then able to make use of very helpful legislative consents, which allow us legal access to otherwise prohibited databases, some of which we may not have the right to use under other circumstances. This ensures the process of locating of a person becomes more straight forward and therefore more cost-effective.
