Advantages of using a female Private Investigator

Female Private Investigator in Coventry

female private investigator

A popular misconception of a Private Investigator is a man in a trilby hat and Burberry mac but in the real world of private investigators, female private eyes are quite often deployed for a number of beneficial reasons.

  • Typically female PIs are sometimes better are reassuring clients and putting their mind at ease, especially when the client is a female. They sometimes feel safer and more comfortable with someone from the same gender. Especially when it comes to talking about personal problems.
  • Women tend to be a lot less of a threat than some men in a certain situations so it is a lot easier for them to find out information without arousing suspicion.
  • Sometimes for whatever reason our enquiries can lead us to come into contact with children and a female is more adept at reassuring younger people than a lot of men.
  • A lone female is likely to arouse less suspicion than a lone male.

Sometimes it is better to have a mixture of a male and a female operative especially in places like nightclubs or bars.

If you are looking for a female Private investigator in Coventry then M.R.Investigations have a number of female operatives to hand.

Each one is trained to the same high standard as their male colleagues. Mainly they are deployed in surveillance operations.

Christmas a time for families

family tracing in coventry

Family tracing at Christmas in Coventry

Christmas as we know is traditionally a time for families to come together. We are well aware that for numerous reasons families become separated and people lose touch with each other.

At this time of year it’s only natural to reflect on absent members of the family. If you want to find that missing family member we can find them for you. We have a very high success rate when it comes to tracing family members.

It maybe you just want to know they are safe and well or it maybe that you want to be put back in touch. Whatever your requirements we can help you achieve it.

How much will it cost to carry out family tracing in Coventry and Warwickshire?

This is always going to be the first question you are likely to ask and rightly so. Our basic search costs £160 on a no trace no fee basis. What this means is if we don’t find them there’s nothing for you to pay. What more could you ask for?

How do you find them

Well we are not going to give away all our secrets of the trade but we have databases available that other people don’t have access to but we also rely on our detective skills to find what we need.

Is it Legal?

Of course, however we are aware that some people are looking for people for more sinister reasons and we will carry out some due diligence before accepting an instruction.

What information will I need to provide

  • Last known address
  • Full Name
  • Date of Birth

We can work from rough date of birth but the more exact information you can provide, the better.

We also carry out tracing services for solicitors, Landlords etc. looking to trace debtors and beneficiaries.

Tracing Coventry & Warwickshire
tracing missing persons
We get a lot of job satisfaction and there is nothing better than putting old friends or relatives back in touch with each other.

We recently had a case where we were contacted by a client who had become aware that she had a brother who was adopted before she was born. Intrigued to find out more about her brother we were tasked with tracing him. As the clients parents were no longer alive there was scant information to go on but due to a lot of hard work we managed to trace him in the south of England.

The client asked if we would approach her brother to break the news to him and ask if he would like to meet his sister. The brother was as you can imagine overwhelmed and agreed wholeheartedly to meeting with his sister.

To cut a long story short they have now been meeting for three months and get on really well and each have met Neices and Nephews they never knew existed.
If you feel we can help you to be put in touch with a long lost relative please give us a call.

Private investigator Warwick

We have just updated one of our coverage locations for Warwick. Private investigator Warwick As it is a stones throw from our location and is a town we work in quite regularly.

We do not claim to be based in the town like some people do but lying 12 miles south of Coventry I think it’s safe to say we are still local.


School catchment area cheaters

School catchment area cheaters.

With places being restricted parents are willing to lie and cheat,  to get their offspring into the right school.

There can be as many as ten children vying for one place at some of the more sought after schools.

This is where they can sometimes get a little help from scheming parents. To be in the catchment area you need to be in a restricted geographical location. It is not uncommon for some parents to lie about their home address to one that is in this geographical circle. Parents are warned that to falsify such information.

We refer to these as “School catchment area cheaters.”

An investigation by the Local Government Association found that, out of 31 councils they surveyed, 77 %  reported an increase in the numbers of parents found to be lying on school admissions application forms.

How do you show proof of residence?

We were called upon last year during the school holidays by a concerned client who’s child had missed out a place at their school of choice even though they lived in the catchment area.

They explained that they had been reliably informed by someone that one child who had got a place at the school was in fact living at a different address with his parents to the address given on the application form.

It was decided to place the house in Solihull that they were suspected of living in, under constant surveillance from dawn until the lights went out in the property. This would show a number of things such as them exiting in the mornings and entering later in the evening and not exiting the address after lights went out.

Also it would show such things as a change of clothing, entering the address with keys and even bins taken out for collection. All these things would show that they were living at the address. This is a very similar method we use for proof of cohabiting.

Off to work

Each morning we saw dad exit dressed for a day at the office and locking the door behind him and driving away. Later in the day the Mother and children including the child who had got the placement in the school would be seen exiting the house sometimes in pyjamas.

They would drive away for a few hours, returning later. Dad would come home parking his car on the drive and would be seen later in different clothing. Eventually lights would go out downstairs and upstairs and operatives would then go home for the night and return first thing the next morning and start all over again witnessing a very similar pattern.

This was carried out over different sporadic days over a two week period.

Prove living in school catchment area

All this information was logged and put into a detailed report showing our imagery and handed to our client who in turn handed this in to the school. The school was happy that we had proved the successful applicants parents had lied about their home address, the boy had his offer terminated and the clients son was given a place at the school.
