A background check or background investigation is the process of looking up and compiling criminal records, commercial records and financial records (in certain instances such as employment screening) of an individual.
Background checks are often requested by employers on job candidates, especially on candidates seeking a position that requires high security or a position of trust, such as in a school, hospital, financial institution, airport, and government. These checks are traditionally administered by a government agency for a nominal fee, but can also be administered by private companies. Results of a background check typically include past employment verification, credit score, and criminal history.
These checks are often used by employers as a means of objectively evaluating a job candidate’s qualifications, character, fitness, and to identify potential hiring risks for safety and security reasons. Background check is also used to thoroughly investigate potential government employees in order to be given a security clearance.
We offer five different types of background searches. Please select the one which best describes and suits your needs:
Tenant Background Check
Avoid bad tenants and deadbeat renters through the use of a Tenant Background Check. Upon placing an order for a background check, your request will be sent to our team of private investigators who will search for the requested information entirely by hand. Through the use of our exclusively accessed resources, we are able to access information that is secure and guaranteed to be accurate. You will be able to locate everything from property and criminal records, to bankruptcy filings. Our background check not only locates this information, but it also verifies key information. When you perform one of these tenant background screenings, you must have the potential renter’s Name, Full Address, Social Security Number, and Date of Birth. Results typically take around 1 business day, helping you make smart – and fast – renting decisions.
Employee Background Check
An Employee Background Check is a very useful tool that has helped many business owners decide whether a potential employee is the right fit for their company. When hiring employees, you must be able to fully evaluate potential candidates and their ability to perform the duties asked of them. Rather than depending on a candidate’s word, with an employee background check, you can validate their identity and level of responsibility. The search includes identity verification (social security number), address history, criminal convictions, bankruptcies, death records, and phone listing; everything necessary to evaluate if a candidates history is appropriate for the job position.
Self Background Check
When applying for many positions today, you will find not only increased competition, but a new trend of employee background checks being performed. With a Self Background Check, you are able to view your own criminal and financial history just as a potential employer might. Because you are able to view this information in advance, you will have the invaluable opportunity to correct any misinformation before applying for any positions. Not only will potential employers perform these checks, but tenants as well. A self background check is useful for any responsible individual who is concerned with what information is accessible through a background check. The information received when you perform a search includes bankruptcy filings, property records, criminal records, possible court actions, civil actions against subject, additional persons associated w/ subject, possible relationships, possible relatives, and any vehicles registered to you.
Comprehensive Background Check
A comprehensive background check is a combination of many different proprietary database searches to provide an image of the subject’s character and financial capacity. The purpose of one of these searches is to not only verify the subject’s identity, but to identify potential areas of concern that may warrant further investigation. When performing a comprehensive background search; you will need the subject’s name, and full address or social security number. Address information is located through a compilation of three major credit bureaus, so dates may not coincide, but the information provided is as accurate as possible. Not all databases are available in every state. Specific details about criminal convictions may not be provided, so if you desire these details you should consider performing a criminal background check.
A Background Verification Search is a compilation of results from four separate databases to verify information given on any application. The search verified the applicants social security number & identity as well as national criminal convictions and other records that will provide accurate and truthful answers to questions on a standard hiring application.
