Private Investigator Witham offer a vast array of services which can help to both commercial and private landlords, whether you have an issue with a tenant who is performing illegal activities on your property or is mistreating it, or perhaps you want to rent your property to a new tenant and want a background check on them conducted.
Do you have an issue with your tenant?
If that is the case, we can carry out a surveillance investigation to gather evidence of antisocial behaviour, illegal activity and breach of contract. Furthermore, we can contact neighbours with the utmost discretion if necessary, and if they are being affected by the tenant’s behaviour in any way, we will gather their statements. So far, with the evidence we collected, we have helped many landlords to evict their tenants and to get back in possession of their property in no time.
In situations where we manage to obtain evidence of any illegal activity, merely by showing the evidence to the tenants and informing them about our intention to notify the authorities in many cases ends with them vacating the premises immediately.
A lot of landlords employ a property management company or a letting agent to help them rent their property, and while in most cases these companies provide a professional and efficient service, sometimes they just don’t perform necessary background checks on potential tenants. There are many reasons why this could occur, but the main one is that the agents usually want to rent the property as quickly as possible.
Permitting the managing agent to perform a background checks on potential tenants has an apparent conflict of interest, especially when you have in mind that most of the agents will offer you 100% guaranteed rent options.
When it comes to renting of the commercial property, most agents just perform financial checks on the company that is trying to rent the property but completely ignore its directors. With our help, you will have the information about the company, its directors as well as any other companies they currently own or have owned before.
Our background checks investigations can help you save thousands in unpaid rent, legal costs and damage to your property.
Locating missing tenants
Has your tenant disappeared without paying the rent or have caused damage?
Our team of expert private detectives can locate your missing tenants giving you a chance to seek justice in the court. If needed, we can also gather photo evidence to confirm their residency at the new address.
The best part is that if we somehow don’t manage to locate them, we won’t charge you for our services, but in most cases, we track down the missing tenants in less than 48 hours.
Co-Habitation & Subletting
Is your tenant subletting or perhaps has moved someone in without your permission?
If you believe that your tenant might be renting out your whole property, or perhaps a single room, we can help you by gathering necessary video, photo or audio evidence to discover the truth.
Most often tenants make very little or no effort at all to hide this breach of contract thinking that it is a “victimless crime”, but in situations where the rent is being paid for by housing benefit the greatest risk is to the landlord as if benefit payments are stopped it’s the landlord who will eventually end up paying for the eviction process whilst receiving no rent potentially for months.
Is your managing agent performing regular inspections on your property and are they delivering detailed reports?
We offer property inspections that will provide you with accurate insight into the condition of your property, and we will immediately report any violation of contract we uncover. Our inspectors can be equipped with covert video & audio recording devices so you can personally see the condition of your property. These inspections often reveal any damages to the property and help landlords to decide whether to renew or terminate the tenancy contract.
So, if you have issues with your tenant or are concerned about your property, give us a call today on 0800 061 4397, and you will get a free consultation with one of our best private investigators.
