In this new series of videos, using Encompass Verify for Law, we demonstrate a case that appears to be simple with very little opportunities to recover money. The investigator uncovers a far more complex situation including a property asset with recoverable value of more than £600,000!
Investigating a company director to ascertain whether the individual owns any assets of value is a common legal research task.
Is it worth litigating?
Is there sufficient unencumbered collateral to secure a loan?
Which company within the group structure holds the property in question and what’s the value?
Encompass Verify accelerates these searches.
The video demonstrates how a basic company search and asset tracing can often miss critical information, and how visualising results and continuing searches can help researchers get the full picture, fast.
From a starting point of what appeared a simple case with very little opportunities to recover money, you have uncovered a far more complex situation including a property asset with recoverable value of more than £600,000.
You have achieved all this in less than 10 minutes and by spending just a few pounds on search fees.

The video overview demonstrates that with a few clicks of the mouse after an initial search on Companies House, using Encompass Verify you can hide details of companies not of interest to your current investigation and run a Land Registry search on the newly discovered property. This reveals the property has a secured creditor in the Bank of Scotland.
Opening the report you have downloaded from the Land Registry shows that Mr Walker purchased the property 8 years ago for £920,000.
Selecting the property on the chart you run a Zoopla valuation that shows the property to be now worth more than £1.5 million – meaning that more than £600,000 of value is potentially available for recovery in your legal case.
