With Certified Credit on your side, you benefit from our wealth of experience, incredible customer service and a full range of time-saving products that help you close more loans! 


Certified Credit is passionate about giving you accurate and reliable information so that your decisions lead to your best outcomes.

We Offer:

SSN Validation

ID verification is step one for any background check. Is your candidate who they say they are? We handle each and every request with finesse and professionalism, because your company’s reputation and success are on the line.

Employment Verification

A candidate’s full employment history can tell you much more than their resume. We’ll verify everything, from job title to responsibilities, employment duration to salary, so you know who you’re hiring.

Business Credit Reports

Establishing risk in companies you’re unfamiliar with is key to deciding whether to work with them, and at what price. Critical data points like trades, bankruptcies, and tax liens paint a fuller picture.

In-File Credit Reports

Certified Credit works with all major credit bureaus to obtain your candidate’s accurate credit information and history. Learn about your prospects possible bankruptcies, lawsuits, collections, as well as credit history and other metrics of fiscal responsibility.

License Verification

It is 76% likely that the job experiences you’re reading on that resume have been embellished (OfficeTeam, 2017). Make sure your candidate actually has the educational and professional verifications they say they do.

Motor Vehicle Records Search

For positions with driving responsibilities, validating a DMV record is critical. For all others, an employee’s accidents, citations, and revocations may still be telling.

Civil Search

Civil case records can be just as important as criminal records when it comes to the reputation of your organization. Certified Credit searches both Federal & County civil case databases to report legal disputes and their outcomes.

Criminal Search

Employers that need a criminal search have to contend with a messy range of information databases and differing regulatory environments at the metro, state, and federal levels. Certified Credit has access to the information you need, and the know-how to do the search accurately and reliably.

Fraud Alert

Integrity is everything. The legitimacy of a potential business partner is of the utmost importance, and should be the first thing you establish when assessing a deal. Identify fraudulent business propositions to let your business proceed with confidence.

General Services Administration

If you’re doing business with the Federal Government, you’ll want to make sure any business partners or associates aren’t suspended, debarred, or excluded from Federal Procurement and Non-Procurement programs. We understand that these agreements have special stipulations and risks that you’ll want to mitigate. Certified Credit will help you keep things on the level.

Medicaid Sanctions

Fraud, negligence and drug-related crimes related to Federally funded health care programs (like Medicare and Medicaid) have become increasingly common. Certified Credit searches the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General (HHS OIG) database to avoid putting your company at risk.

Other Services
  • Workers Compensation History
  • International Search
  • Substance Abuse Detection
  • US Warrants
A Strong Staff Is One You Can Trust

Every individual is a constellation of data points; the more data you have about your applicant, the greater your decision making leverage. Effectively validating your candidate’s qualifications not only ensures their integrity, it also protects the integrity of your organization.

Compliance Is Critical

Records access can vary from state to state. Our awareness of the inter-state regulatory environment puts your background screening efforts at an advantage, and guards your company against costly missteps in confidentiality and records compliance.


Living agreements go far beyond a lease. When you let a tenant into your property, you let their history in with them.

We’ll Help You Secure Quality Tenants With:

Credit Reports

It’s not enough to have the first and last month’s rent; a tenant’s financial status can impact their ability to keep payments coming on time. Certified Credit Reporting works with all three national credit repositories to provide you with up-to-date and accurate information on your potential tenants’ fiscal responsibility, employment information and other pertinent data, helping you adequately assess a tenant’s risk and sign the lease with zero doubts.

SSN Validation

Are your tenants really who they say they are? Do they have a legal right to enter an agreement with you? We’ll make sure simple questions like these have simple answers.

County & Criminal Search

A tenant with an unreported criminal past can be especially burdensome. Both misdemeanors and felonies create extra risk factors, especially if future criminal behavior occurs on your property. Certified Credit Reporting will keep you and your tenants on the right side of the law.

Eviction Reports

A past eviction report can be highly predictive of future incidents. Certified makes the screening process quick, simple, and affordable for any landlord.

Increase Your Profitability, Decrease Your Headaches

Tenant screening protects you, your financial investment, and your tenants, all while keeping you compliant with the Fair Housing Act (FHA). With Certified Credit’s tenant screening, you’re equipped with the decision-making insights you need to avoid risks and secure quality tenants.


When you’re making critical decisions about a business entity, it helps to have all the cards on the table.
