Debtor Tracing

Millions of pounds worth of debt are written off each year as a result of debtors moving and leaving no new address or telephone number, leaving the debtor seemingly ‘untraceable’. DCBL’s debtor tracing services help to establish your debtor’s whereabouts and allow debt to be collected.

With over 50 years’ collective experience in the Debt Recovery and High Court Enforcement industry, we know that the speed with which the debt is resolved is crucial. Therefore our debtor tracing service helps to establish your debtor’s whereabouts as quickly as possible and is vital to the collection of your monies.

What is Debtor Tracing?

Debtor tracing helps to locate individuals who are indebted to you to ensure debt collection can go ahead. For example, the debtor may have relocated providing no forwarding address to deliberately avoid paying.

Leading The Way

To continuously provide industry-leading collection rates, we ensure we have the best processes in place. While many of our competitors predominantly use publicly accessible information, we have invested heavily in the most up-to-date real-time trace, financial profile and address verification systems. We have the ability to search for your subject in more ways than one, including D.O.B, surname, alias or partial postcode. This database is updated continuously, giving us real-time addresses and phone numbers derived from credit links and activity. It gives us the ability to trace debtors that otherwise have escaped the system.

How debtor tracing works

The debtor tracing service works by extracting data from dynamic internal and external sources, providing us with the subject’s most recent credit activity and linking them to any address and telephone number they may be using.

Unlike any publicly accessible information, our database can provide us with a full financial profile and credit activity without leaving an electronic footprint.

We conduct our debtor tracing services in an ethical manner and all of our systems use only DPA compliant techniques to find individuals legitimately.

Key Benefits of DCBL’s Debtor Tracing

  • Continuous tracking: Debtors can be put on a continuous review/tracker, alerting us to any changes in their circumstances and any new addresses they may be using.
  • Contact information: Our debtor tracing process shows all telephone numbers linked to the individual – past and present – if they are linked with their credit file.
  • Full profiling: Our process can give us a full profile of the individual including any supporting information that may be linked with their credit file so you get a complete picture.

Tenant Tracing

Our debtor tracing services include tenant tracing for landlords. We can help you trace tenants who breached contract or owe your company money, finding their latest address and other contact information where possible, such as a telephone number.

Additional Services

In addition to debtor tracing services, we can also offer a pre-court debt recovery service from our Debt Recovery team. Contact us today.
