Applicant pays for background check, wants a copy of document

An applicant paid $50 for a background check. She had 2 evictions so we turned her down. She is asking for a copy of the report, since she paid for it.

How do you handle this? Do you give her a copy?

I personally wouldn’t but you might want to check with your attorney. People like that just want to make problems and besides that she already knows what is on her report.

Seems to me she wants it so she can contest it, or maybe sue you for whatever reason she can come up with. I would ignore this request, you only have to lose.


I do not give them a copy. The service you use should handle the proper turn down documentation.
