Other companies may sell Tenant Screening Packages for less than our package. These companies do this by only performing database searches, where we go beyond the databases. If you use their information deny tenancy to an applicant, you are in non-compliance with applicable federal regulations. This non-compliance can result in fines ranging from $100 to $1,000 per occurrence.
See an example of the financial penalty for non-compliance with Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulations:
Global's Tenant Background Check Package is fully compliant with all applicable regulations. We ensure this by performing a comprehensive set of searches, which is why our package costs more. We will not perform searches that are not in compliance with all applicable regulations.
Note: Global's Package prices vary due to mandatory state fees (GA, KY, MI, NY)
Address History and Social Security Number Trace: This search provides the addresses where a subject has lived. This search aids in identifying counties a subject may have lived in but not reported as a previous address. The address history is important and necessary in order to conduct searches. (This information comes from different sources and should not be considered an official search from the Social Security Administration or official verification of an applicant's social security number.)
National Criminal Database and Sex Offender Search: This is a database search of more than 160 million criminal records from 47 states and the District of Columbia. This report provides information from courts, probation / parole and conviction records. This search also provides sex offender registrations from all 50 states. (NOTE: Information reported using this search must be verified by conducting a county criminal search in the county of offense, in order to remain FCRA compliant to the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FRCA).)

Each additional county, if requested by you, is $9.95 per plus any applicable county court fees.
