When Should You Use a Private Investigator?


There are many reasons why you might need to use a Private Investigator, but the most common causes include:

  • Individual
    • A tenant who’s suddenly moved out leaving property damage and/or unpaid rent
    • Debtors who have gone into hiding trying to avoid paying the money that they owe
    • Asset tracing (pre-repossession)
    • Surveillance
  • Matrimonial
    • Divorce
    • Infidelity
    • Childcare investigations
    • Surveillance
  • Business
    • Workplace theft
    • Fraud investigations
    • Drugs usage
    • Industrial espionage
    • Asset tracing (pre-repossession)
    • Debtors who have gone into hiding trying to avoid paying the money that they owe
    • Specialist Insurance investigations
    • Surveillance


People can decide to make themselves hard to find for a variety of reasons.

Do you have the time and resources to undertake the exhaustive online searches?

And if the person is really determined to hide, then those online searches probably won’t help you anyway.

What about when you are the employer in a business and suspect that there may have been misconduct, or even serious misconduct?

If you raise your concerns with the employee(s) without having assembled sufficient evidence, then you risk not only causing unnecessary stress to all parties, but potentially opening yourself and your business to a grievance claim and costs.

In each of the above situations, the recommended approach is to use the services of an experienced Private Investigator who holds the appropriate licence or accreditation(s).

Any individual and company in the business of providing investigation services is required to be licensed as a Private Investigator under the PSPLA Act of 2010.
