Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. What is the check for and what type of background check do you need?
I need to check if there are any current I estimations being made against me in the UK which may prevent me entering the country
Why do you think there may be?
Not estimation, but investigations
Could be anything, which firm can help me do checks with the police and the border agency please?
The problem you will find is that there is no one available that can tell you everything there is about you with the police or the BA - a lot of what they know will be confidential and will not be available for disclosure to companies, whatever background checks they do. When you have a background check done you will only be able to see whether you have any formal convictions or cautions on file. So if you have never been in trouble with the police in the past you will not have anything on the background check. What investigations the police may be conducting on you is not something that anyone can reveal for you and no such company exists unfortunately - all of this would be classified information which only the police will have access to.
So even if I appoint a solicitor to do checks s/he won't be able to enquire even if they legally represent me?
Another question, can I give someone a power of attorney to apply and recieve my passport?
No they won't - such a service does not exist. A solicitor cannot do much in these circumstances. You can apply for a background check yourself if needed without appointing a solicitor but you would not be able to find out what investigations the authorities may be doing about you - if you could do that then any criminal would be doing it and be a step ahead of the police, it just does not happen
What exactly do you need the person to do with your passport and what for?
It is taking over 8 weeks for a passport to get processed from overses. I would like to get someone to apply on my behalf I th UK using the premium service and collect it for me in the same day.
Are you a British citizen that is having a replacement passport or are you taking your first UK passport?
I am a British citizen and I am renewing my passport as it ran out of pages
I am pretty certain it is not possible because you have to follow a strict process and the problem with using other people is the risk of the process being abused in order to commit passport fraud
Ok . Thank you.
you are most welcome
