Why use a trace agent

This article will cover the subject of why use a trace agent and when to use a tracing agent. There are a number of situations in life where you may find yourself wanting to find someone who you cannot track down yourself. Whether that’s a witness, to investigate missing people, locate long-lost loved ones, or a debtor. Of course, we all have a few basic methods of finding people that we employ ourselves. Searching their names on social media for example or trying to find them through the electoral roll. Taking a look through the telephone directory.

But if your own methods have been exhausted, you may feel at a loss as to where you can find them or how you can reach out to them. This is where a trace agent can come in useful, helping you to achieve your goal of finding the person (or people) you’re looking for!


Why You Might Want to Find Someone

As we’ve briefly noted, there are a number of different reasons you might want to find someone who isn’t all too easy to contact. When people think of tracing agents, they tend to think of services that people use to find long-lost relatives in a bid to reconnect. This, of course, is a service that a tracing agent can help you with. But there are many other reasons you might use a tracing agent as well.

You might be waiting for a will to come out of probate, but this can’t be done until a certain beneficiary listed in the will is found. Tracing agents often find themselves locating beneficiaries of wills. You may need freeholder tracing to find an absentee freeholder or you might be interested in tracing debtors who owe you money and are avoiding you. The potential reasons are countless!


The Problems with Traditional Means of Finding People

If you’ve encountered issues using any of the above-mentioned means of finding people, you’re not alone. Countless people find that these options are limited and don’t often deliver the results that they’re looking for. Why?


Read on to find out.

  • Social Media – believe it or not, not everyone has social media. Plus, it can be difficult to access people through social media, as many people have private profiles, or messages from people they’re not connected with maybe filtered into “other messages” folders that aren’t checked regularly.


  • The Electoral Roll – often, the electoral roll is out of date. They’re not updated regularly and increasing numbers of people are choosing to not have their personal information publicly available on the electoral roll. Often, names and addresses on the electoral roll can be over several years out of date.


  • Telephone directories –  again, telephone directories are often out of date. Nowadays, few people add themselves to the telephone directories or fail to update their information on telephone directories. So, again, the information isn’t all too useful.
