Linked Investigations can provide you with Asset Searches that provide the critical information you need to make an informed decision about the person in question.
Asset Searches – The Fundamentals
Asset Searches, also known as Asset Checks, are a specialized version of a background investigation. Asset Searches are focused on locating and identifying an individual’s assets. This typically includes finding homes & properties, businesses, places of employment and sources of income… as well as vehicles, possessions of notable worth, bank accounts and other investments. An Asset Search includes a wide range of public or civil record and computerized searches to obtain specific information about an individual’s net worth or economic value.
Asset Searches often do reveal businesses that the individual owns or has owned . This often ties in associates and relatives to produce a clearer picture of the truth. Our Asset Searches can also uncover negative information about the individual which is extremely important for you to know. Tax liens, judgments, bankruptcy, defaults, complaints and other derogatory information is discovered.
Public records are not always accurate or up-to-date in the manner one might expect. Years of experience coupled with diligence is vital in identifying the validity of such information. Often, data bases do not include data on the assets you are searching for. Title and true ownership information can be disguised. This is where the value of our investigative expertise is required to locate hidden assets through other means.
When necessary, surveillance services can also be employed to monitor a person’s activities. This can be valuable tool to determine what the person does and where he/she goes. This can often lead to where assets such as money, vehicles and properties are located.
