Are private investigators legal?

Private and corporate investigation are entirely legal and reputable professional undertakings within the UK; you will not be contravening any law if you hire Bond Rees or accept reports or evidence from us, indeed these documents can be used to support legal cases in the UK.

Whilst fully legal, the private investigation industry is actually unregulated in the UK but there is legislation in place that restricts and guides its practice such as the Human Rights Act, the Data Protection Act, the Freedom of Information Act, the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act, and GDPR. 

It is crucial that you engage a professional and legally compliant private investigation agency such as Bond Rees to make certain that you are not at risk of any legal action if the provider carrying out your work fails to comply with any UK law.

What can a private investigator legally do?

Legislation in the UK referred to previously sets guidance around what legally can and cannot occur within private and corporate investigation processes.

Certain actions are prohibited such as entering private property without consent or installing surveillance equipment or devices within private property without the informed consent of the resident or owner. 

Professional private detectives cannot hack into email accounts or tap mobile telephones, and they must not persist with unwanted communications or contact.

Unless certain criteria are met it is illegal to employ use of GPS tracking devices.

It is also illegal to provide information on an individual’s whereabouts if there is a court order such as a restraining or non-molestation order in place preventing this.

However, many useful techniques and activities remain that are wholly legal to undertake to aid robust and productive private and corporate investigation such as covert surveillance, taking of photographic evidence, undercover roles, database and record interrogation, social media analysis and many more.

Bond Rees do not undertake illegal tasks or place our clients at risk of legal action and act in accordance with UK law at all times.
