All trace investigations will be conducted in accordance with all relevant UK and European legislation.

Where our trace investigations prove to be unsuccessful you will be provided with a full account of our findings. All tracing will be completed within a maximum of thirty days from receipt and all positive traces are offered with a trace recheck service for your peace of mind.

The following additional information points, will help us to make sure the subject traced is the correct individual.

  • Full name
  • Date of Birth
  • Area of location in the UK

We provide peace of mind for lawyers, trust and estate practitioners and personal representatives by helping to ensure that every beneficiary is accounted for. Where the deceased has died testate there may be one or more legatees whose whereabouts have become unknown during the period since the will was written. We can assist you in locating these people, or those persons entitled to benefit should the intended legatee have died. can also assist in locating people for other reasons. For example, we will search and investigate for missing executors, trustees & freeholders etc.
