It can be quite hard to totally disappear in a modern industrialised society like the UK, so if your tenant disappears owning you money then you should be able to find them with the help of a professional tracing agent.  A tracing agent can make use of a wide variety of resources to find your tenant, including:

  • The Land Registry
  • Companies House
  • The Electoral Register
  • The DVLA
  • The Register of Births, Deaths and Marriages
  • Google
  • British Telecom
  • Mobile phone companies

The agent will generally need at least the tenant's full name and date of birth - information you definitely should have if you did your due diligence when taking the tenant on originally.  

There are no guarantees of course, which is why you should choose a tracing agent with a 'no trace no fee' payment structure.
