What Information Do They Check?

Background Information Services Inc. uses information from a variety of sources to help their clients filter out any risky candidates. BIS uses information that includes but is not limited to the following:

  • Eviction data

What Should You Do If Your Screening Report Contains Errors?

Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) provides regulations and guidelines for background checks and screening reports. In the guidelines, it is expressed that if any of the data introduced through a screening report is false, inauthentic, or deceiving, then, at that point the revealing organization needs to make the necessary alterations within 30 days. Additionally, it is the organization's obligation that the report doesn't unfavorably influence the competitor for leasing/purchasing a property.

Some screening agencies, such as BIS, at times, fail to resolve disputes within the 30-day deadline. If you are in a similar situation, you have the right to take legal action against the screening agency to ensure that such instances do not repeat in the future.
