Hello
This is Samuel and i will discuss this and provide you information in this regard
Under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, you have to use a Consumer Reporting Agency. A CRA is federally regulated to maintain high standards for privacy protection and dispute resolution.
Below is a link for a list of those agencies

Please copy and past the link into a browser and then on page 13 OF THAT DOCUMENT there are list for tenant background checks

Thank you Samuel. I went through the 1st link on page 13 (CICreports.com). The landlord makes a request (with only the tenants email), the tenant pays and if the tenant wants they send a pdf of their report to the landlord. One of the problems with this method is that the tenant can manipulate this report.

I am looking for a site that I enter the SSN and name, and I receive the report. Can you help me with that?

Thank you
