Eviction Specialists


Unfortunately, as a landlord you are sometimes faced with attempting to evict a tenant based on allegations of illegal activities. Due to the high demand of police officers time, and the prioritizing of crimes that will be enforced by law enforcement, police officers cannot be counted on to solve all the problems of a landlord.  Experience has shown that some savvy tenants who engage in criminal activity use the legal system to avoid eviction, which unfortunately, brings down the quality of life for the rest of the community. The team at Eastern District Investigations (EDI) have countless years of experience in state and federal investigations dealing with undercover work including investigating drug crimes, which use the cover of multi-unit apartment dwellings to hide their activities. The experience of the Eastern District investigator's is used to investigate tenants who are involved in illicit activities and to obtain direct video evidence that can be used in civil or criminal prosecution of the tenant.  It is no secret that the legal cost of a contested eviction in the Detroit metro area can exceeded $4,000 for one case.  However, to avoid such high legal cost the team at EDI will investigate your tenant without charge.  EDI will not bill the clients unless we can confirm there is undisputed fact of wrongdoing.  Feel free to contact our office prior to the start of an eviction process to discuss cost saving options, and to avoid unnecessary legal fees.

Aerial Surveillance


Eastern District Investigations (EDI) employs staff that have been conducting covert surveillance for over thirty years. EDI will always be on the cutting edge of training and tactics.  It is with this mindset that the EDI team now employs an operative knowledgeable in the use of drone surveillance and is licensed by the FAA as a commercial drone pilot.  EDI now has the ability, under certain circumstances, to use state of the art drones to observe subjects or locations. This tactic, however, new, can be very helpful in developing intelligence on surveillance conscious individuals.  EDI can provide drone surveillance when ethical and legal, which could produce video and still images of the target location or subject. The best evidence is direct evidence.
