BLM Investigations

Tyne and Wear

Matrimony/Infidelity: If you suspect a partner is cheating, we may be able to provide you with the evidence you need to prove innocence or guilt of their infidelity. This is usually demonstrated through video evidence gathered during a period of surveillance. We can employ other methods eg. Due Diligence checks to verify their whereabouts on a given date and time. Periodic reports will be provided upon request during the course of the investigation. A full report will be provided upon its conclusion. Surveillance: BLM Investigations operate a fully equipped covert vehicle for surveillance. We also use alternative surveillance equipment whereby vehicles are not appropriate. We try to match the equipment to the job and will employ specialist equipment when necessary. Surveillance can be carried out for numerous purposes. Surveillance operatives are deployed to gather evidence and/or information relative to a specific instruction. It is useful in matrimony/infidelity cases, fraud investigations, insurance claims and many more authorised investigations. We will advise you if and when surveillance would be useful in an enquiry. It is a means of obtaining hard, indisputable evidence to assist your cause. Trace Enquiries: There are many reasons why you may need to find a missing person. - The Legal Profession may need to have documents served, trace witnesses, bail abscondees etc. - A Member of the Public may wish to find a missing relative, friend, business partner, father who owes child support payments etc. - A Creditor may wish to find debtors or vehicles to repossess in default of payment - Adoptees may wish to find their natural parents - A deceased persons estate manager may wish to find potential heirs The list is endless. We are here to help. On finding missing persons, in some circumstances it may be necessary to seek authority from the person found before releasing details of their whereabouts. If authority is refused we will be able to pass your details on to the found person to enable them to contact you if desired. Process Serving: Process to be served can take many forms. It can be legal documents which must be served by a certain date and by a specific method, or it can be any other document that you want to ensure that the recipient has received and have the proof to verify it. All process served will be accompanied by a Statement of Service, an Affidavit of Service or a Certificate of Service, whichever is appropriate. Legal process will be served in compliance with the Civil or Criminal Procedure Rules. All other process will be served in compliance with the Data Protection Act.

What do you love most about your job?

I enjoy helping people who are at a disadvantage usually through no fault of their own. I strive to redress the balance giving my clients the opportunity to make informed decisions with regards to their future conduct of matters. Each clients needs are specific so tailor made action plans vary quite considerably keeping my job more interesting. I love the flexibility and variety that my job offers and always rise to a new challenge.

What inspired you to start your own business?

I have worked within the legal sector for 22.5 years. I have experienced all aspects of Crown and County Court work as well as Criminal Enforcement. I have also experienced self employed work as a debt collector. During these times I have always felt great sympathy towards the victims but unfortunately, my duties did not include offering support. By becoming self-employed it has given me the opportunity to give that support and collect hard evidence along the way.

Why should our clients choose you?

Due to my legal sector experience, memberships of both the Institute of Professional Investigators and the Association of British Investigators and registration with the Data Protection Act all of my work reports are suitable for use in a Court of Law and comply with all relevant legislation. I am a sympathetic person and always strive for the best possible results. On each instruction I consider various options before devising an action plan which will give you, the client, maximum impact in the most cost effective way. Being a member of the professional bodies gives me access to a wide network of other professionals who are also legislation compliant. Sometimes during an investigation it is necessary to use specialist services.

Private Investigators FAQs

Expand all

Prices can vary depending on your professional’s experience and the location of the investigation.

Your professional private investigator will be able to advise you on the full range of options, including what is most suitable for you. Use Bark to receive free quotes and get in touch with local private investigators today.

Some of the common services your private investigator can help with include:

  • Surveillance and counter-surveillance

  • Taking pictures and compiling evidence

  • Interviewing witnesses and conducting research

  • Conducting background checks and running credit reports

  • Process serving

  • Performing due diligence and debt recovery

There are several factors worth considering when choosing your private investigator. These include:

  • Referrals - You will likely be sharing personal information with this person, so it is important to find someone reliable. Do as much research on the private investigator as possible. Ask trusted friends for recommendations and always check reviews.

  • Office-based - Make sure they have an office. If your private detective only works out of restaurants and over the phone, that is a sign you should get out now. You need to know where to find this person if they don’t follow through on their obligations.

  • Experience - Ask about their experience and education. To make sure your job gets done right, find a detective who specialises in the task you need. Ask about their experience and the results of their past work.

  • Insurance - Most serious private investigators are insured. While it is not necessary for all jobs, if something were to happen during the work, you as the hirer, would be held liable if there was no insurance coverage.

  • Confidentiality - You are very likely to deal with sensitive information when you are working with a private investigator, and you need to be sure they will be discreet and respectful of information shared between the two of you.

  • Contract - Your initial consultation with a private detective should be free, and from there, they should be able to outline anticipated costs. If you choose to follow through with the work, make sure all fees and expectations are clearly outlined in a contract.

  • Be prepared - Brace yourself for what a private investigator may uncover. Be sure you are ready for whatever they may find, especially when it involves people close to you. You may hope the private investigator will prove your fears wrong, but be sure that you will be able to handle all outcomes.

You can be confident that any of the local private investigators on Bark will give you a reliable and professional service.

Before you choose a private investigator, you could read testimonials and details of their past work on their website.

You could also look at their profile page on Bark, which displays reviews from past customers.

Absolutely! Although, it's important to carry out thorough checks on your personal investigator as well as looking at testimonials from previous clients, as your professional will be dealing with sensitive information, so you need to ensure that they're trustworthy.
