A background check gives you further, in-depth access to a person’s public records information.

Where Do Our Address Search Results Come From?

As soon as an address is filed at a county recorder’s office, it becomes part of the official public record. So, too, are any changes to that property moving forward, including if and when the property changed ownership, any permit requests for construction (remodel, addition, new build, etc.), if the property was ever in default, the names of those who lived and/or did business there, and so on.

The Smart Background Checks address search database grants you access to information for that property and any of the millions of other addresses that exist in the U.S. More than that, we do the legwork to gather all that data and pull it together into a single comprehensive report for your convenience. Our address lookup report gives you a total picture of what a property has gone through over the years, so you can make an informed decision.

Better Information = Better Decisions

As long as it’s part of the public record, we have access to information about any physical address in the United States. You can perform an address search to:

  • Check out the history of a property you’re interested in buying
  • Figure out a property’s real value
  • Discover if any criminal activity took place there
  • Get more information on the surrounding neighborhood
  • Find the names of the address’s past and present owners and/or occupants
