For more infrmation on our Open Source Intelligence success cases, please read our blog, Open Source Research: What is it? Why we do it!


What is it? – This is our ability to trace people that are not missing beneficiaries. That is a separate service. The service can apply to someone you need to locate such as an executor or a creditor (someone that owes money).

Why do we do it? – Solicitors will contact us in need of us to locate someone. For instance, an executor who might have moved abroad or a debtor who has changed address! They can become extremely difficult to locate if you are not a tracing expert.

Do we charge for it? – Yes we do, these services are charged at an hourly rate.

How long does it take? – This is case depending. Some cases can take a few hours but if they’re abroad it can take up to a few weeks.

No Win, No Fee

Our no win, no fee options have an obvious advantage for our clients. Unless the work we have been commissioned to do is complete, we are not paid. These options also mean that the client instructing us is not responsible for payment of our fee, it is deducted from the Estate during Administration.

If you have an enquiry you would like us to look into, then please get into contact with us now.

If they’re out there, Blanchards can find them.
