Background Checks

Whether to assist you in making the correct hiring decision or for the simple need to know something about someone who has recently become a part of your life, Private Detectives Corporation can help you to discover the information you need to have in order to make the correct, informed decision.

Due diligence reports and background checks for individuals

If you are in a situation whereby you feel as if you’d like to, or need to know more about someone before taking the next step in your relationship, a background report is the ideal way to put your mind at ease. Carried out with the utmost discretion and sensitivity, our investigations into the histories and backgrounds of private individuals allow you to:

  • Check out a potential or existing personal partner before taking the plunge into marriage or a deeper relationship.

  • Establish the financial situation and credit standing of a potential partner, irrespective of whether you’re considering a personal or a business relationship.

  • Determine the reliability and, or character of a potential employee, such as a nanny, a babysitter or a carer.

  • Check out any criminal background of a potential partner or employee.

If you want to discuss the possibility of a background check to enable you to make the right decisions moving ahead, why not get in touch right now? We will talk you through how our background and due diligence checks work, so you can decide if it’s the right way to go for you.

At the Private Detectives Corporation we’re here and ready to have a free of charge, no-obligation chat with you. At the end of that chat, we’re confident that you’ll have complete confidence in choosing the best way forward. And at the end of the day, if for some reason we think you don’t need us, we’ll be the first to tell you! Call us confidentially on 0800 043 6667.

As a help to screen people within your life or organisation a background report can give you the answers you need.


Why you might need a background check

There are a wide and varied range of reasons why we are instructed to perform investigations into peoples backgrounds. As an example we have recently been contacted to verify the references and history of a nanny, the claimed history of a new partner met though the internet and also to verify the financial status and the corporate history of a prospective business partner.


In the past ten years we have found a large rise in dishonest individuals using the internet to hide their identities and to mask their true history. We have ensured our investigators are all experienced in the use of the latest technology and we keep up-to-date with all the newest online scams and stories used by these scammers. We also have a wide range of trusted and reliable contacts located across the globe who can perform vital 'local' checks wherever the individual subject is based. This has meant we are now regularly hired to perform background checks on potential boyfriends or girlfriends, people who our clients have sometimes never met.

There are a large number of website's offering 'free background checks' or else for a very low fee, we would question the ability of many of these sites to perform a thorough or accurate background check based on the examples we have been shown. We have even been witness information reported to clients which, on further investigation by ourselves turned out to be quite false. We believe we offer very competitive rates in this field of investigation and we are confident we have the knowledge and skills to assure that the information we report is both accurate and legally obtained.

A well performed background report can and should give you full peace of mind about the subject you are hiring, doing business with or letting into your home.

If you’re in a personal relationship that you’re thinking of taking to a new level, for example by co-habiting or by marrying, it may well be that you’d like to do your due diligence before taking the plunge. You might want to verify your partner or potential partner’s criminal or financial background, or you might simply want to make sure that your judgment of their character is spot on. Either way, a background check is the perfect way to put your mind at ease.

For anyone thinking of employing someone to work in their home or to work with their close family, irrespective of whether that role is caring for children or elderly relatives, a background check on your shortlist of potential employees will allow you to make the right selection from your preferred candidates. What’s more, if you’re considering entering into a business relationship with someone, you really owe it to yourself to make sure you’ve done all you can to establish their suitability before going headlong into something you might regret.


If you would like to find out more about someone you’re going to allow into any part of your private life, why not get in touch? After all, it costs nothing to talk.


How background checks will help you make the right decisions

At the Private Detectives Corporation, we work with you to listen to your needs and concerns, enabling us to establish the right kind of background check for your personal situation. There are any number of companies who offer standard background checks for a relatively small fixed fee. While in some cases this might be all you need (and we’ll be the first to tell you if it is), it’s a real pity to assume that this sort of check will necessarily give you all the information you need to make an informed and confident decision moving forward.
