Effective November 1, 2006: The
federally regulated credit bureaus require a site inspection of your
principal office or residence (if you have a home office)
and wish to have access to an official credit report. As an
alternative, you may use the AmTRAX®
report to avoid a site inspection.
What is a
site inspection? A licensed inspector approved by the bureau will
visit your office or home (wherever you primarily operate) to verify
the following: 1. Consumer credit files can be stored securely in a
locked (room, drawer, filing cabinet, safe, etc). 2. you
operate in a legal manner and are not operating an authorized
business such as a
massage service, credit counseling organization, law
enforcement agency, private investigator, tattoo service, bail
bondsman, adult entertainment, credit repair or reseller, news agency, journalist or dating service.
