Private Investigator FAQs

Private Investigator FAQs

Why hire a private detective in Durham?

You might be worried that hiring a professional investigator feels like a drastic or unfamiliar response to a personal issue or situation but people of all walks of life with all types of dilemmas contact Bond Rees frequently seeking help with a problem in their life.

Maybe you are even considering avoiding the cost of hiring a professional private detective and planning to try to undertake private investigation into an individual or situation yourself.

Professional private detectives are highly experienced and undergo rigorous training as well as possessing very specific skill sets to undertake their work.

They also make use of software, technology, and equipment not available within the public domain which grants them a significant advantage over an untrained or amateur attempting investigation.

Trying to investigate a person or situation yourself can prove highly frustrating and futile; there is a high probability that you will be unable to achieve the answers you seek or evidence that is robust enough to enable action to address any issues resolutely. You will most likely waste a great deal of energy, effort, and money.

There is also the chance that you will be detected by the subject of your investigation leading to confrontation and even conflict; this may well also void any further chances of investigation being undertaken.

You might also inadvertently contravene UK legislation around private investigation in the UK and commit a criminal offence potentially causing you to face legal action yourself.

Hiring a professional ensures that you will get to the truth and obtain the irrefutable evidence you need, in the shortest of timescales and removes any risk of legal action or comeback for you.
