Asset investigations can reveal what type of real estate, vehicles, boats, bank accounts and debt that a subject has. Knowing the true value of these items that may have been previously omitted from statements, will aid in paint an accurate picture of what kind settlement payment the subject has the ability to make. When investigating a business you can also find out how secure their debt is before becoming involved with them. In any case, it is important to know if there are liens, judgements, tax debt and history of criminal and civil cases when conducting an asset investigation. These reports are then compiled into a format that is ready for court.
