Purchasing and leasing property is a major undertaking. Buyers have a responsibility to conduct due diligence and make sure they are dealing with ethical people. Failing to conduct proper due diligence can lead to lawsuits, loss of funds, and an increase in liabilities from third parties who use the property. With a history of conducting in-depth investigations, Employers Choice Screening can help you “kick the tires” and make sure you are aware of the character of the real estate agents with whom you deal so you can secure a better future for yourself and your family.
Many states do not prevent those with criminal records from obtaining a real estate license. Employers Choice Screening can perform searches at the county-level for criminal history such as for fraud, financial crimes, and violent crimes that would not show up in a civil record search.
A county-level search for civil records can quickly identify cases involving breach of contract, negligence, fraud, and more.
The majority of states in the U.S. have a board that oversees real estate agents and other real estate professionals. When executing a background check on real estate agents, we can contact the relevant department and verify that the person with whom you are dealing is licensed and in good standing. If disciplinary action has been taken in the past, a record will exist documenting the incident. Disciplinary actions you want to be aware of include agents conducting sales without holding a valid license, unlawful loan modification, and unlawful sales.
