An asset investigation (asset search or asset check) is the locating of public records that confirm personal property or real estate held by a person or corporate entity.What is an asset search?An asset search uncovers the value and any potential liabilities that may be tied to a property. Asset investigations help individuals and companies satisfy their due diligence, settle personal injury cases, collect debt, and verify financial statements during a divorce or child support case.


How do I know if I need an asset investigation?

  • If you own a business, an asset check can reveal the state of a person or company’s assets and financial stability. If you work for a company or do business with someone, it is important to know the state of their assets. It is one of the only ways you can determine with certainty whether someone is financially trustworthy.

  • If you are owed money, an asset investigation can tell you whether it is worth it to go to court and get your money back. If someone claims they cannot pay, an asset investigation can confirm or deny this. If you want to go to small claims court or a collection agency, an asset investigation can determine how many collectible assets a person or business may have and where you stand in relation to other creditors suing the same debtor.
