5 Reasons to Hire a Private Investigator in the UK

Coming to the decision that you might need to hire a Private Investigator in the UK isn’t easy…however, you can rest assured that at Howard Agency, we are entirely committed to providing clients with an exceptional level of legal support and investigation services.

Unsure when you might need to consult a Private Investigator? And how to go about doing so? Here’s 5 reasons to hire a Private Investigator in the UK.

  • Rely on highly skilled individuals, with discretion guaranteed

The highly skilled team at Howard Agency come from a variety of backgrounds – including ex-military and police officers. 

This means that not only does the team hold a very comprehensive skill set, but that we can ensure the right person is assigned to any case, depending on individual circumstances and needs. 

What’s more, Howard Agency is a long-standing member of the Association of British Investigators (ABI), and you are therefore guaranteed professionalism, discretion and most importantly, confidentiality, at all times.

  • Gather intel before pursuing someone

You might not be certain that you need the services of a Private Investigator, and wondering where (and who) you can turn to next. In cases like this, a status report, otherwise sometimes referred to as a status check, is the best next step.

A status report allows you to take a step back and see the full picture, before deciding on whether or not you wish to pursue a situation further. 

Whether this involves a business relationship, or something more personal, we can provide you with detailed current and historical financial information, allowing you to make a more informed decision.

  • Prevent expensive mistakes

Although most people nowadays are well versed in uncovering information through online web browser trails, more often than not the information that proves to be vital cannot be recovered in this manner.

Background checks are a valuable tool to avoid costly mistakes – this can vary greatly from hiring an individual who may have criminal convictions, and those who have ‘embellished’ their list of qualifications. 

On a more personal note, this type of check is designed to give peace of mind to anyone hiring an individual within the home, such as a caregiver, cleaner or babysitter, and ensure that your family is kept safe. 

  • Protect your business and ensure compliance

If you’re a business owner, how do you go about protecting yourself from your competition? 

What’s more, how do you ensure that your own employees are following correct policies, government regulations, and legal requirements?

A corporate investigation, otherwise known as a corporate compliance check, involves conducting discreet enquiries that produce definitive results. 

  • Enter an agreement with certainty and peace of mind

You wouldn’t make a big decision such as booking a holiday or buying a car or a house, without doing your research. The same principle stands for business transactions also.

A due diligence investigation is much more in-depth than a background check, involving examination of a business’ financial position, along with other important elements. This information can then be further compared to any information that has been previously declared on contracts and pre-agreement documents to ensure that everything marries up sufficiently.
