All expenses form part of general expenses that could occur whilst following a subject or maintaining surveillance on an individual. A minimum of 4 hours will be chargeable for surveillance cases to allow for travelling time and initial setup costs.

All payments will be paid by an initial deposit in advance, followed by further payments as / if the case requires it.

All operations are carried our "Plus expenses". These will normally be limited to the following.

  • Public transport
  • Undercover expenses during undercover work
  • Any fees to public or private functions necessary during surveillance

Any other expenses will first be agreed by the client in advance.

Please note that we do not offer refunds unless otherwise stated by us in writing prior to our receipt of cleared funds. All monies must be paid in advance for all work carried out. Any balance outstanding to us must be settled within 48 hours (unless agreed otherwise). Any balance outstanding to the client will be used as a form of credit that can be used in future investigations. We offer no guarantee of results in any surveillance or outbound work that we undertake.

We will not be held responsible for any loss of the subject whilst on surveillance: Any hours booked prior to the start of any job will be the hours payable in the event of any loss.
