Businesses may need to find out more about an employee, associate or competitor. They may require an objective investigation to be carried out regarding potential fraud within the company or an employee who has been on long term sick and whom they suspect is falsely claiming illness or injury.

A person may have gone missing or off the radar and you need to find them to check on their welfare, recoup debts owing or to proceed with legal action.

There are legal frameworks within the UK that private investigation must comply with, and these are mainly dictated by The Human Rights Act 1998, GDPR, The Freedom of Information Act 2020 and The Data Protection Act 20218 amongst others.

Reputable private investigation agencies will ensure all of their agents practice within these legal confines and that no breaching of these occur throughout your investigation.

What can a private investigator legally do?

Private investigators have a broad range of legitimate investigative options available to them and utilise their training, skills and experience to maximise the outcomes achieved through these. 

Legally, a private investigator can undertake background checks, research a person through information records and databases held on them, review social media and clarify identity and personal details.

A private investigator is legitimately able to undertake covert surveillance of an individual, use surveillance equipment and gather photographic evidence to support findings.

Physical enquiries and contact with persons involved with or associated with the individual can be conducted in a discreet and undetectable manner with no legal requirement for the subject to ever be aware.

Under certain criteria it is legal for a private investigator to use GPS vehicle tracking.

A private investigator can trace a person who has gone missing or is in hiding whilst remaining fully legally compliant.

Private Detective Case Study: Surveillance To Catch A Cheating Husband

Location: Birmingham

What we did

In April 2023 our private investigators in Birmingham were hired by a client who was suspecting her spouse of cheating. Our client had been having suspicions for around a year, but was never able to find concrete proof of infidelity. Not wanting to end her marriage on possible false suspicions, she hired us to uncover the truth. We were contracted to carry out 4 days of surveillance in Birmingham on the husband. 

After trailing the husband for two days, our private investigator found that he was meeting with a woman regularly in Solihull, but they did not have any visible physical contact. On the fourth day, our investigator found that the husband took the woman to a hotel a couple of miles away from his home address in Dudley. He notified the client of the hotel address, the floor and the room number. 

The client turned up to the hotel and knocked on the door, which was opened by the husband. Inside, the client could clearly see that the husband was in fact having relations with another woman. Things turned ugly when the client resorted to physical violence, attacking her husband and the other woman. Our investigator immediately contacted Birmingham police, who were called in to calm the scene down. 


The client thanked us for the job we had done, because she finally had confirmation of infidelity after such a long period of time. She initiated divorce proceedings that went uncontested by her now ex-husband.

The exact cost will depend on the services and package you require but a guide to pricing is provided above. A representative will make you fully aware of all costs before work starts for you.

Why can’t I investigate someone myself?

Private individuals or businesses not operating in the field of private investigation simply don’t have the access to information, resources, experience and skills to undertake private investigation at a level that achieves the results required and the robustness of evidence needed to support this.

There are complex legal frameworks around private investigation in the UK and an individual or company risks breaching these and committing an illegal act if they try to undertake investigation themselves which could result in hefty legal penalties.

What happens when I contact Bond Rees?

A consultant will get in touch for a non-obligation chat with you about your situation and to explore your needs. They will then advise you of the solution Bond Rees can provide and the costs associated with this. It is entirely your decision whether you then proceed.
