Private Eye London


Investigation Background Research is a standard component of all types of investigations including background checks of employment and personal background checks. They help us to find solutions to questions such as who is this person and what is their history.

Employment or personal background checks look into someone’s history to establish whether they are suitable for a particular job, or a personal relationship.

We look for information to confirm if they are honest, reliable and qualified for the job, either professionally or personally.

It is extremely important to make sure someone is an asset, or a possible risk to your family or business.

In today’s climate it is becoming more common practice for companies to use background checks to protect their business. We are one of the foremost companies in London for background searches.

Our Packages


For the Bronze package we search back literally hundreds of pages on all major search engines and social media sites listed here. Something that would normally take a person literally hundreds of hours of research our software tool can do in 2 hours. Saving you a great deal of time and effort. Research has shown that more than 95% of us don’t search the internet past the first, second or third page. Our internet software search tool does all of the deep searching so you don't have to. In addition to this, our internet software research tool has access to investigative databases that are rarley available to the general public, because the subscription costs are generally too high.​


For our Silver package we do exactly the same searches as above, and in addition to that we search all 25,000 newspaper archives to see if an individual has any stories printed about that person including court cases and criminal convictions or civil court cases in the county court. This search is more in depth and very useful for someone looking for a more in depth background report on someone's past.


For our Gold package you get everything in bronze and silver and in addition to that you will get all of the limited company information including directorships and any solvent or insolvent company information and any corporate data in relation to someone's assets. This is ideal if you are looking to conduct business with an individual and you would like help to eliminate your risk in dealing with this person or company or for example if you have a pending court case and need open source evidence (legal evidence) to support your credibility in a legal battle against an individual or a company. This package is also ideal for solicitors and individuals or small to large business owners who are looking for as much information on someone as possible. This is our most detailed and comprehensive background report.
