You can also find a local credit bureau agent that will run an idividuals credit for about $15. If you contact TRW, Equifax or Trans Union they can probably give you a local vendor. You will need to take the applicant to the vendor’s store and have the applicant fill out the forms and pay for the report. They can then give you a copy for your review. This is also helpful since for an additional $10-15 they will explain everything on the credit report to the applicant. Just ask to be present so you get a free credit report class. I have managed collection agencies in the past and done this for friends to help them clean up their credit. It usually can be completed in under 20 minutes.
