One of the biggest fears for landlords is that their tenants will up and leave the property without notice, leaving damage and/or debt. If you have this problem, you’ll need a landlord & freehold tracing service.

Remember, you have rights and your tenants should never leave a property without:

a) Giving notice
b) Paying for any damage they have caused
c) Leaving a forwarding address.

If your tenant has left your property without giving you the money they owe or paying for any damage they have done, you have the right to trace them. Keep in mind also; any fees you might incur from having to trace them can be classed as additional charges, which they will have to pay.


How Can We Help Trace Your Tenants?

The ideal time to start tracing a tenant, if they have a debt to be paid to you, is a few weeks after they have left your property. This gives them time to settle into a new place and makes it a lot easier for them to be traced.

Once we have located them in their new property, we can look into further information for you. For instance, identifying their assets or employer tracing so you can apply for an attachment of their earnings. We can also start any legal proceedings required to recover your monies, pay for damages and/or compensation you are owed, through the Small Claims Court.


Tracing Freeholders

This is a very different scenario and often means we have very little to work on and/ or old information. We therefore approach freeholder traces bearing these factors in mind and, making the most of our experience and expert knowledge, generally have a lot of success finding the subjects in question, even in cases where they have relocated across the other side of the globe.
