If you deal in repossession, you probably know how difficult it can be to perform asset recovery. In fact, asset recovery is an important part of many services, which may mean you’re providing asset recovery services on top of other legal services like collections. Whether you’re focused wholly on asset recovery or you incorporate asset recovery into the rest of your services, public records can be an important part of that. These are a few ways public records can help you understand asset recovery a little better.
Mapping Out Relationships Between Individuals
Part of asset recovery revolves around skip tracing, or being able to find someone. Most of the time, repossession doesn’t happen in the most ideal of situations; it’s common for people to try to avoid repossession actively. Many asset recovery professionals have to build a complicated web of relationships to discover the assets they’re attempting to recover. That means finding subjects, relatives, workplaces, bosses and more, all of whom you can find when you’re able to access public records.
- Finding someone can be an incredibly difficult part of asset recovery because many people try to run.
- Understanding the relationships between your subject and potential relatives can lend a huge helping hand in asset recovery.
- Public records can help you create these relationships, which will give you additional options for contacts.
Performing Searches With Partial Information
It’s unlikely that you’ll have all the information you need to perform a proper search for your asset recovery. You may only have partial information about an individual, or you may have lots of information, but scattered across a variety of different categories. For example, you might only have someone’s first name, an old phone number, and part of a previous address. If you know how to utilize public records properly, this can still be enough.
- Asset recovery requires that you’re able to use all the information you have, even if it’s only partial information.
- Building a profile on someone might require a variety of searches, which can include searches with partial information.
- When you have public records to rely on, that partial information can help you discover the person you’re looking for.
Discovering Potential Locations for Subjects and Assets
Sometimes, you won’t be able to narrow things down to an exact location. It’s common for there to be multiple potential locations for an individual or the asset you’re trying to recover. It’s up to you to discover these potential locations, so you can locate the thing you’re trying to locate. However, you also need to narrow it down as much as possible, so you don’t waste money and time going to locations that don’t pan out.
- Making an educated guess is actually an important part of asset recovery because you might not be able to determine the exact location.
- Narrowing things down as much as possible will make sure you don’t waste time and money through the process.
- You need to strike a balance between narrowing down your options and ignoring genuine possibilities.
Anticipating Future Locations
It’s all about staying one step ahead of the person you’re trying to recover assets from. If you’re dealing with especially valuable assets or a very crafty individual, you don’t want to stay one step behind in your hunt. Instead, you want to be able to anticipate the next location that these assets may end up at. A wealth of public records can help you anticipate the future location of whatever asset you’re trying to recover.
- Knowing how to anticipate a potential future asset location could save you plenty of money and time.
- The only way to make an educated guess about a future location is to know more about past locations.
- If you have all the right information, you can understand past, present, and future locations more effectively.

“I can personally attest to Tracers success in locating and effectively arresting 4 people for outstanding felony warrants, just in this short time. Thank you - often time the people I look for don’t have an updated driver’s license address which leads to wasted time and not being able to locate relatives - your product has filled that gap and I can’t thank you enough!”

How Can I More Accurately Perform Asset Recovery?
Asset recovery isn’t easy, and a large part of it requires a good demeanor in dealing with subjects. If you have all the right information before you approach a subject, it’s much easier to deal with them and help them understand where you’re coming from.
Tracers gives you the opportunity you need to have that information. Even the most difficult-to-find subjects and assets are easier to discover when you use Tracers data. From telephone numbers to motor vehicle data, if it can help you uncover someone’s location and help you find an important asset, Tracer can probably provide you with up-to-date information about it.
