Many thanks for your patience, I am pleased to be able to continue assisting with your query now. It is generally not illegal; to get such checks done because they simply use readily available information which the private investigators would know where to look for. Most of this information will be publicly available as long as you know where to search for it and how to access it and that is precisely what an investigatory would do in the circumstances.
What may be unlawful if someone is being followed as part of a surveillance procedure and they find out about it and ask for it to stop but it continues and causes them further distress – that is likely harassment but I do not see it being an issue here as all these checks can be done remotely.
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
