Massachusetts Asset Searches
Whether it is for research on a financial crime, divorce, or you just want to know. We at On the Mark can track assets for you. We’ll look for real property, motor vehicles, watercrafts, civil judgments, hidden bank accounts and much more to suit your needs. We are Massachusetts based, but do complete asset searches nationwide.
- Assets are either personal property or real property.
- An individual’s personal property includes everything he or she owns.
- Assets are classed as either “tangible” or “intangible.”
Your objective in an assets search is to find bank accounts or something to attach – a vehicle, real property, a house. If the owner has a homestead exemption on the house, you will not be able to touch it. However, if your subject owns the lot next door, you can attach the lot. If he owns an apartment building or other commercial building, you can attach those assets. The easiest asset to attach is bank accounts.
We do searches for:
- Tangible Personal Property
- Intangible Personal Property
- Collecting Child Support
If you are a private attorney looking to gather information for a client in a civil proceeding, call me about your investigative needs. I am well known in the legal community.
Some other reasons to conduct an asset search:
- As a means of locating a person.
- To learn about a person’s wages and income: these assets can be “attached” or “garnished.”
- Before filing for divorce, to learn exactly what property and possessions are owned and by which parties.
- If you are considering investing in a new venture, taking on an investor, going into a joint venture, or considering a merger, you should certainly conduct an assets investigation.

As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. If you pay $50 for an asset search on a website, you are only getting a tiny part of the picture. It may just contain the most superficial and easily available information.
My investigative experience will lead me to things someone behind a computer will never get.
And my investigators are not above doing some trash picking or dumpster diving to find those obscure financial records or receipts. (I am a certified garbologist(TM), myself.)
