Employers and Landlords must abide by FCRA when taking adverse action against an applicant based on their Background Check therefore our Reports are FCRA compliant and will only report per the guidelines below.

However, if you are ordering a report on yourself or someone else for Investigative purposes (ie. Law Suit, Collections, Check out a Sub Contractor etc..) then we can provide a NON FCRA (NOT FCRA COMPLIANT) Report which will report all available (beyond the FCRA Time Limit) civil records found via the courts public records . You must inform us that you need a NON FCRA Civil Records Report (this does not apply to Credit Reports).

This means that any information on a **** NON-FCRA ****report CANNOT be used to deny employment or tenant leasing.

Reports that can ONLY be ordered as NON-FCRA:

* Bankruptcy, Liens and Judgments Check

* Civil Judgments Check

NOTE:  Your report will be labeled as **** NOT FCRA COMPLIANT ****
