Hiring a Private Investigator can be costly, too costly for some. However, how can you still gather the evidence for your case (legally) by hiring a cost-effective PI agency in Singapore?

Firstly, there are several types of private investigation agencies in Singapore. For sensitive cases such as matrimonial investigations, please do not hire an agency that hires part-time PIs as they are less experienced in handling situations that might lead to your partner being aware that they are being investigated.

Do not look for budget private investigators by risking having your case blown, but instead look for a reliable and professional PI agency that gets the job done efficiently and cost-effectively.

Tips on Hiring a Private Investigator

If you're looking to hire a PI agency, here are 5 tips to select a private investigation agency in Singapore:

  • Licensed in Singapore. According to the Singapore Police Force (SPF), A Private Investigator's license is required to operate in Singapore. Be sure to look out for their agency license number and their individual PI license number. Do take note of the expiry date as some PI might still be soliciting business after their license is expired, which is against Singapore law.

  • Customer Reviews. If you do not have a trusted friend's recommendation, the next best avenue is reading their online reviews such as Google Reviews. This will give you a good idea of past clients of that agency and their cases solved success rate.

  • Experience from Past Cases. The experience of the private investigators and the evidence-gathering equipment used is critical to the success of your case. If the agency has a website, read about their niche or past experiences in related cases and equipment used, if any. If you're looking for matrimonial investigations, look out for that agency's experience in marital cheating cases, and peek into their methodology of investigations to solve these cases. This would give you a good idea of their approach to your case as well before even meeting the PI.

  • Communication Frequency. If you need the PI's report for the court hearing, be sure to check with the agency on the frequency of updates and timeline of the report after the surveillance if any. As PI's cases are mostly private and confidential, make sure that your PI has strong ethics to keep your information and communication channels secure and up to date.

  • Pricing. Services such as surveillance may drag on longer than expected. This is why you should ask for a clear pricing structure before you engage a PI agency in Singapore for their services. Make sure an official service agreement is being presented, clearly stating any additional charges if it overruns. Failing to do so would give leverage to your PI agency that may charge you exorbitant amounts for completed the service. Some PI agencies will also try to sell you a "package price" with hidden costs and prepaid manhours which will not be refunded. Avoid committing to any packages and always look out for the hidden cost, GST, and other extra charges.
