European Trace and Skip Trace Enquiries
Seeing the need for a highly
successful European Skip Tracer and Skip Tracing searching
system we, in conjunction with colleagues from across Europe
developed the European People Finder which is a
collaborative system which can quickly and easily find the
missing person that you are looking for.
Once instructed and placed in
funds we only initially require a full name and former location
to begin the search.
As with all enquires knowledge is
power and we would ideally request a full name, birth date and
previous address along with all relevant information you may
have as even the slightest detail can sometimes break a case.
We with our European colleagues have licensed access to the
European People Finder, a patented Skip Trace and Skip
Tracing system holding over 800 million names, addresses and
We now live in a multicultural European society and thus
confident, competent European tracing agents are required. There
is also the obvious requirement of staying within the law, not
only of the relevant country inhabited by the subject but also
of the issuing courts.
Positive Results All trace and skip trace results are verified
and reported in a manner to suit your Court and Procedure Rules
To trace a subject and then be
undermined by legal technicalities is becoming ever more common,
an unverified result is obviously more costly then a negative
result as this will only lead to further attempts at service at
the incorrect location.
We also have access to Marriage
and Death files, Electoral Roll and reverse Electoral Roll
files, Directors reports and even Criminal Records in countries
where this is legal to verify reports before we attempt service.
Time Frames for
Tracing and Skip Trace Enquires
To find a person can be a
difficult task, naturally, however, 95% of all European Skip
Traces are successful.
Our Skip Trace and European Searches normally take approximately
This is by no means standard
however, some enquiries can take a few hours while some can take
a few weeks while we wait for the subject to reappear on the
system, inevitably they will reappear it can just depend on the
elusiveness and experience, especially when dealing with a
debtor who is aware of being followed.
Because we operate by e-mail, data exchange with you is as
instantaneous as different time zones allow.
The majority of our trace work comes from referrals by lawyers
who have used the expedient service previously and as a result
we have developed a successful method of locating debtors,
incorporating the use of the many facilities at our disposal,
including local visits where necessary.
Local Enquires &
Local Visits or 'Door Knocks' can
save thousands in law suits when someone is simply hiding away
hoping not to be found or worse, served with documents.
A simple covert enquiry, maybe a
'Pre Sue Letter' being delivered or just enquires with
neighbours give the best piece of mind that someone is resident,
why take a risk and then have a law suit completely wasted
because someone has vacated a property or still there but
claiming to have 'gone away'
Our success rate is obviously largely dependent on the degree of
information given at the outset of the enquiry and a door knock
can be the best indication of the situation.
A neighbour in London telling an
agent that a debtor has moved to Zurich would have huge time and
cost implications attached.
Equally the sooner we are instructed, the greater the chance of
