Frequently Asked Questions


Q: How long will it take to receive my order

A: We will process your order as soon as we receive it. However, please remember the bespoke nature of the services we offer. Tracing an individual can be a complex process and take anywhere from 1 to 30 days to complete.


Q: Confidentiality?

A: You become our confidential client. We will not release your details to anybody during the process of tracing an individual unless we have your express consent and it is necessary to confirm certain trace details - i.e. tracing a family member. However, in most instances, the process remains totally confidential - i.e a debtor or tenant trace - the subject will not be aware they are being traced.
