Background Check Investigations

Background Check Investigations

Deep Searches

Have you ever had the feeling when someone is talking about their past experiences, they are lying to you? This may not just be in casual conversation, but even possibly when that person is applying for a position within your company. Anyone can write down on a CV that they have previous astronaut experience, and he or she carried out some general maintenance on the International Space Centre 8 years ago. They may even tell you they were previously in a position of CEO for a multi-million-pound company. Worst of all, you may believe him or her... Sentry Investigations Ltd are private investigators Birmingham, and we conduct in depth background searches into people who you may need to establish an understanding of. We search a whole host data bases to build clear pictures of people, thus allowing you to make informed decisions on how you wish to proceed with that person. 

Types of Search


You may already have a name for the data subject, but we can discover if he or she has any other aliases. Birth names, married names or even names changed by deed poll. Our searches also highlight any associated phone numbers, email address and linked accounts across the web.

We can find out current and previous addresses of our data subject's. Not only that, we can acquire far more detailed information. For example, house sale prices, property descriptions, dwelling types, previous and current property occupants, deed ownership etc.

Credit Data

Our credit data searches give clear understandings of a data subject's financial situation. We would never be able to look into someone bank account and find out how much money he or she has, but we can see other information. We can see if the subject has any red flags against him or her. This will allow us to see the value of filings for any CCJ's, IVA's, DRO's or even bankruptcy petitions against him or her.

Employment History/Business Ventures

We can gather information through various sources and enquiries to build up a picture of past and other present employment positions as well as past business ventures. Often, employees fabricate reasons for departure from previously held positions as he or she may have left on bad terms. We can uncover the truth behind reasons for departure or failed ventures to give you an understanding of who you are dealing with.

Private Investigator Background Searches


If a will has been executed, we can obtain copies for distribution. Wills can hold considerable value for all involved but unfortunately it is often the case that people do not allow all involved parties access to them. This could prevent parties from financial entitlements as allowed for in the will

Signing Contract

Criminal History

We can look into a data subject's criminal past however, as this is classed as 'Criminal Data', it is only possible to do so if we have consent from data subject him or herself. If the data subject does not consent to a search of this nature as a requirement for an employment position, then the employer can make the decision whether take him or her on or not.

Non-Intrusive Data Searches

Contact a Private Investigator Birmingham

Our job is to dig into the people's background's. This may seem pretty intrusive but our approach is entirely professional but most importantly, legal. If we can satisfy a Data Protection Impact Assessment with our reasons for carrying out background checks on somebody then we will proceed with our enquires. If we do not get over this first hurdle, the investigation will cease there and then as we will be in breach of GDPR requirements. This may not be the outcome some clients want to hear, but we take GDPR very seriously as should all professional organisations. 

CV Searches

We thoroughly scan CV's and make in depth enquires into the validity of past experiences, qualifications, previously owned companies etc. These checks are not only limited to UK searches, but pretty much anywhere in the world. Our Open-Source Intelligence Operatives have the knowledge and skill set to obtain information through sources most people wouldn't know about or even consider. Our searches are not always necessarily business related either. Searches can be carried out on a partner or "friend" of yours to ascertain whether they have been telling you the truth about who they really are.
