Status Reports / Fit to Sue

Contact Dukeries – 0845 230 3012


All our Status / Fit To Sue Reports are carried out at our Head Office in the East Midlands. We are continuously investing in the latest technology and new resources to ensure we are keeping up to date and making sure we provide our clients with the highest possible service.


Information is vital…. Particularly before legal action is taken. When you take legal proceedings against a debtor, spouse or any other individual you need to ensure that that individual has enough credit to take legal action against, otherwise  you will be wasting your time, money and chances.

At our head office in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, we have a dedicated desk researcher who carries out these reports on a daily basis for clients throughout the United Kingdom. We can also conduct desk research overseas but time and costs will change from country to country. As we have a full time researcher we are able to offer a fast, professional and accurate Pre-Sue Report that will be very useful in identifying the financial status of the respondent or business. The information that we gather will enable you to make a decision on whether you should fine legal proceedings or not.


There are no Magic Buttons

Unfortunately there are no magic buttons when carrying out these sort of desk enquiries and we can only find information that is in the public domain. There are many obstacles that our desk researches face and non-more so than the UK Law and in particular – The Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA).

We are constantly looking to invest in the latest resources, databases and technology to ensure that we have the greatest chance of finding a positive result for the client.
