How to find a person’s address

So, you have a name, but you need to find their address in the UK?
The first tip of advice to finding the person is to search on social media. Although this may seem like a weak solution, it is very possible to find who you’re looking for across a range of social media platforms. These can include Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, WhatsApp. On Facebook and Instagram if you attempt to send them a message it is likely that they will not see it as they need to accept your follow request or add them as a friend.

If you can’t find the person you are looking for by searching their name, then think of mutual friends and check if the person you are looking for is on their friends list.
If you do not know the name of the person you’re looking for, then it is possible to try a reverse phone lookup. This will give you the name and current address of the person associated with a specific phone number.
Even after all these methods you are still struggling to find the person and current address you’re looking for, then it is probably time for you to contact UK Private Investigators. Here at UKPI we have access to databases that are not available to the public. We hold years of experience in locating people and depending on the situation, it is possible we can trace a person’s address within minutes or hours of beginning our search.
