Public Records

Public records refers to information that has been filed or recorded by public agencies, such as corporate and property records. Public records are created by the federal and local government, (vital records, immigration records, real estate records, driving records, criminal records, etc.) or by the individual (magazine subscriptions, voter registration, etc.). Most essential public records are maintained by the government and many are accessible to the public either free-of-charge or for an administrative fee. Availability is determined by federal, state, and local regulations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. What information must I have in order to locate assets?

Ideally, each request should include the subject’s name, address, SS/FEIN number and date of birth. If you have only a name and address, we can usually develop the remaining identifiers. If you are unable to provide the subject’s social security number or Federal Employment Identification Number, we apply a $25 surcharge for certain searches. Keep in mind, more complete and accurate information from you yields better results for you.

Q. Under what circumstances are asset searches legal?

With the exemption of real property and patents and trademarks, Liquid assets and other non-public record information are considered to be protected personal financial information according to Gramm-Leach-Bliley (Public Law 106-102). In addition, by providing such information, Search-Net Management may be considered a “financial institution” . Therefore, any request regarding such information, must be accompanied by a signed statement of permissible purpose as outlined in the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (Public Law 104-28) and the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act of 2003. In addition, Search-Net Management cannot provide account number or balance information. However, this is provided when available. If you are submitting the search for collection purposes, you may be entitled to a credit for all or part of the charge if no recovery results
Generally, if you have a judgment or a documented debt, are acting under court order or investigating a business transaction initiated by the subject, you may order such searches. In matrimonial and estate cases, the permission of one of the spouses or an executor must be on file. Our forms contain fields that indicate the permissible purpose and authorizations but if you prefer to keep us anonymous, you may attach a plain language authorization signed by your client. If you are unsure as to whether you have a legitimate reason to request a search, please call customer service at 212-447-5913.

Q. What is the scope of each asset search?
