Skip Tracing is one of SWA’s specialist areas. Skip Tracing is sometimes referred to as ‘tracing’, ‘missing persons’, or ‘locates’.

Skip tracing is a professional service to locate missing persons or assets. It is a service in which we excel.
There’s no magic involved just intensive database mining, online forensics, tenacity and experience.

People need to be found for various reasons. They may be required as a witness in court proceedings, be a missing family member or delinquent debtor. Lately, the restrictive nature of privacy laws is making the task increasingly difficult.

Here at SWA, we understand the need for privacy, but we also understand and sympathise with our clients’ need to be able to contact people. Clearly, there are many reasons for both legitimate commercial and private reasons.

Consequently, SWA has invested heavily to provide our clients with every legally available search facility and database on the market. As a result, when this is combined with our team’s exceptional investigation techniques, you will quickly realise why a high percentage of other agencies use SWA to conduct Skip Tracing on their behalf.

Bear in mind that SWA does not endorse illegal searching activities. Clients can be assured that every legal avenue will be used to complete their instructions and within budgetary constraints.

At SWA, we are of the belief that if we cannot find the people or assets we are asked to locate, they will not be found by legal means.

Guarantee: A located address is guaranteed for 28 days as of the date of our report unless we advise otherwise .e.g. in the case where the subject/s move is imminent. A located address is either a work or residential address.
