A real estate investor compares the cost of buying real estate to the risk involved before making a decision. He/she also considers the possibility of fraud in the transaction. Acquest has a licensed private investigator on staff who routinely does extensive background checks for our clients. We have all of the necessary resources to discover financial issues such as liens, judgements, foreclosures and bankruptcy’s and also all criminal history of someone that you may be considering in a business transaction or partnership. This small and relatively inexpensive step can save you years of litigation and unexpected financial loss.
