Tangible Asset Searches

This is the simplest form of research into belongings and chattels.  Your investment is with the intent to find out the following about the subject’s resources and obligations:




Corporations – Is the subject a director, manager or officer of an incorporated entity?  Perhaps an LLC or sub-chapter S corporation or two have been established without your knowledge.


Real property – What real estate does the subject really own?  This could be a house, condominium, retail outlet, commercial building or even a vacant lot.  Once a judgment is in place, a lien can be placed on any of these properties.


Vehicles, Vessels, and Aircraft – Does the subject own a nice car or maybe even a boat?  This type of check will reveal all the identifying information about the asset, such as the vehicle identification number (VIN, tag and the sales price.  This information can be used to repossess property, when allowable under the law.


There are a variety of possible tangible asset searches. Contact one of our asset search specialists for more information...


 Bankruptcies – It’s important to know what liabilities a subject might have, especially if they have declared bankruptcy.  There are certain protections under that law that are afforded to persons who have filed for various types of bankruptcy.  The most common are Chapters 7 (liquidation), 11 (re-organization) and 13 (repayment). 


Tax Liens – Another item to take into account is if the subject has tax liens.  These can be levied by a number of municipal bodies: city, county, state or federal.  The amounts can range from less than $100 to into the millions.  Depending on the purpose of your inquiry, a tax lien may have an impact on your decision making process.  If you are conducting due diligence and find liens in the subject’s history, you may want to rethink an investment or merger.  If someone owes you money, you may have to figuratively ‘fall in line’ behind those who have already attached liens on the subject’s property.


Judgements – A judgement is a formal decision given by a court.  Following a proceeding, the court may issue a decree that stipulates a variety of measures.  Commonly, a judge will render a verdict that one party owes the other a sum of money.  Why do you need to know about this?  If you are considering loaning money to the subject, it might give you cause to reflect when you find out that they already have judgments against them on file from other creditors.
