Background checks

What's the real reason for them? What would prompt these companies to require them from us?

Banks do not want the Media claiming they sent felons into mortgagers homes. That's all it is. It's that simple.

IMHO...
This is to save face from all the fall out....
They want the people financing the industry to pass a BC but yet the people in the middle are ok????
Look at how many times that the mathis guy and his buddy lambert have been allowed in the last three years to acquire a contract from a national to sub their work....
It is nothing more than to allow the NAMC's to say "well we did a BC on them, they must have hid something"

again....this is not generating from the clients...the lenders we work directly with have not once even hinted at this....not once....
I might add...we...our company...entered into working relationships based on our company's reputation for being able to deliver a quality product. Not because of the backgrounds of our employees.
Here's the rub on this issue....
If one of these companies tell you that you can not have a job because of an ex-felon status with yourself or one of your employees...discrimination issues apply and they can be sued.....

Wells Fargo has pushed for background checks and I am sure Bank of America has as well.

Neither has asked us for our rap sheets yet and we have completed some deep pocket orders for them.

The Wells Fargo initiative was outlined at NAMFS and it came directly from Wells. I am not sure who you are working through or for but I assure you both Wells and BOA have been pushing for this.

I hear what you are saying as far as your personal experience. What I am saying is they not only stood up at NAMFS and asked for this they are putting pressure on the nationals they use to institute the policy.

Again I ask for one good reason background checks are a bad thing?

I feel this policy will help eliminate some of the trashy people we have in this industry. I also feel that if these lenders are going to add more qualifications to us we should be compensated for it. If they are going to require a background check they should pay for it.

I personally have no problems with a background check (BGC). The ones who fear the background check (on the company or it's employees) have reasons for the concerns. It may be they feel it blurs the IC -vs- Employee lines, but as I have seen stated here before many times a non PPI contract comes with the same requirements. I personally subscribe to the we all should send a current BGC with all Contractor Applications. Show them we have nothing to hide. Pay the contractor's whom pass more for services!

As for mandating that we use a the carrier they choose and pay them for the BGC in advance, before any work comes well I strongly disagree. If my company and it's employees have passed the Federal Governments BGC then why should it have to pay ABC company for repeating the check annually? The multiple BGC and associated hits on credit scores are an issue that needs addressed. The BGC itself in my opinion does not. This is my personal view and in no way is meant to represent the NPPG policy nor future plans for BGC policies.
