Due Diligence Background Checklist

by Joe Hoover

An Due Diligence Report Should Include

This checklist provides guidance for anyone wishing to accomplish a thorough and complete Due Diligence Background Check. Before proceeding, you might want to check your state's requirements concerning legal matters and, "Due Diligence."

Personal Information & Identity Verification

The goal here is to positively identify your subject.  Database data derived are from credit reports, utility bills and magazine subscriptions. Results will vary depending on the information you provide. When comparing data derived from initial perusing, discrepancies will stand out like a red flag!  A different DOB or SSN; one or more of these disclosures may indicate an area of concern.  One will question: "Why?"

Important: Before proceeding with anything else, run these additional searches to complete a thorough Personal Information and Identity Verification:

Social Security Number
DOB validation
Preliminary Name and Address History
Second Name
Credit Header
National Death
Driver's License Information
Driving History

Once you have accomplished the Identity Searches listed above, run these important searches:

National Background Trace Detail Report
Phone Summary
Verified Addresses
Previous & Non-Verified Addresses
Possible Properties Owned by Subject
Possible Associates
Possible Relatives
Possible Neighbors

Business Relationships & Professional Information

An individual's assets are often discovered in the name of a business or partnership. Personal and business collateral is often provided for business loans. Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) filings may include the name(s) of bank that provided the business loan. A Business Credit Report will provide meaningful, invaluable information, like the names of owners and top management, as well as giving credit ratings within the particular industry of interest.

Business relationships & Corporate Affiliations
Company Name Search
UCC Filings
Legal Actions
FEIN Search
Professional License Searches
FAA Registrations
Vessel Registrations Professional Verification These searches verify employment, professional licensing, and educational achievement. This is very important information required when conducting a comprehensive Due Diligence Background Check.

Education Verification
Employment Verification

Financial Information

If you hold a judgment or are considering a lawsuit to collect money you are owed, real property (with the exception of exempted real property), vehicles, aircraft, and boats, are easiest to attach.

Nationwide Property Ownership
Deed Transfers
Motor Vehicles Registration

Civil Court Records

Check the county Civil Court for lawsuits, judgments and liens, which will reveal a great deal about a person's financial situation, and reliability. Some filings, like liens, lawsuits and judgments, often appear as a "derogatory" discloser on a credit report.

Evictions, Lawsuits, Judgments & Liens
National Bankruptcy Records
Federal Civil Court

Criminal Records

To conduct a through and complete criminal records database search, first confirm your subject's previous addresses, including the counties of residence. All states do not operate a statewide criminal courts database. All states do not contribute or report to a national database. Therefore, there is no national database of all criminal records. Always check four levels of criminal records: National Department of Corrections (DOC), for current and past felons; Federal Criminal, for crimes that fall into the federal jurisdiction; Statewide Criminal, for those states that have such a reporting system; and, of course, County Criminal Courts maintain the most concise and up-to-date documentation available to all.
