What Are The Different Reasons Why You Would Want To Hire A Private Detective?

There are several different circumstances why you may need to hire the services of a private detective such as:

• Background checks
• Cheating partner
• Surveillance
• Locate an address
• Locate missing tenants

Background Checks

It is an unfortunate truth that when you first meet someone, the only information you have about them is what they decide to tell you.
This is true for those who have business partners, life partners, tenants and employees. If you hire someone to handle sensitive positions such as a caretaker or a housekeeper, you may also find it beneficial to conduct a background check.

A private detective can conduct a detailed background check, and will zero in and provide you with additional information. For example, they can conduct a criminal check, and find out if the person was convicted of any crimes. They can also get information about a person’s credit history, and can also provide you with a worldwide background check if you desire.

A Cheating Partner

Do you know if your partner is faithful or not? Can you be certain? A lot of clients hire private detectives to find out if their partners are cheating on them. It is often the not knowing is the worst aspect of unfaithfulness in a relationship.

If your partner is cheating on you, you are well within your rights to find out the truth. If they are not cheating on you, the proof will be necessary to help alleviate any worry or concern you may be feeling. Only by having the facts will you be able to move on with your life either with or without your partner.


Private detectives are aware that discretion is a must when someone’s background is being investigated. Private detectives are very trained and qualified in rural, static and mobile surveillance techniques.

For example, maybe you have a partner who is not as honest or faithful as you want them to be, or you may have a business partner who is trying to defraud you. Before taking action, it is important that you are 100% certain.

However, what if you are sure, but you are not able to prove it?

Some of the most common requests for surveillance include:

• Investigate false insurance claims
• Do surveillance on a workplace
• Find out where a person works
• Find out a person’s address
• Do surveillance on an employee

Locate Missing Tenants

If you are no longer in contact with a current or a former tenant, you may be concerned especially if they owe you a lot of money. If the tenant has left a deposit or bond, you can technically use the deposit to help recoup some of the money they owe.

However, even if the bond covers unpaid rent, there may still be the issue of damages to the property, or outstanding utility bills. The good news, you can hire a private investigator to help track down your missing debtors. After locating the tenant, court proceedings can begin.

The overall advantages of hiring a private detective are very successful, and can help you get the results you are looking for. Keep in mind, you should never be guaranteed a 100% success rate from any investigator you hire.
