My family and I moved to Hawaii, and we put an application in with military housing - my husband is a 100% T&P retired combat wounded veteran, and we were denied because his name came back not clear? So confused as we have nothing against us! We only had a mortgage, so not sure where they are getting their information from! The only thing I can think of is when my husband goes and purchases guns, he always has to wait a few days to be cleared cause his background always comes back to another gentleman with the same name, different age, and different race- so why doesn't housing look into this?! They used my name and did it, all came back good- but can't use me as I'm not the retired veteran for the housing. TOTAL **!!!! This company screwed me and my family over! We are going to start the process to fight this issue.
Safe rent/ Core logic currently has a pending lawsuit against them. They have violated the fair housing act for years. Primarily against people of color. I have only been denied housing on a rental application twice in my life both since I've relocated to Florida and both times the property used core logic/safe rent. I have good credit and a perfect rental history, no late payments of any kind ever, no evictions. Like most of the reviews my background came back as if I had a criminal past. I have never committed a crime and have no criminal past. A lawsuit was filed against them this year March of 2022. They use a shady algorithm which disproportionately disqualifies people of color from housing.

I applied for a townhouse at Howard Hills Townhomes in Savage, Md. Application was denied because of Credit history and Criminal history. I HAVE NO CRIMINAL HISTORY. Retired from Homeland Security had a Security Clearance mist of my working career. This company is bogus...too many folks with the same complaint something not right. They need to be investigated.
I applied and was approved for an apartment. Weeks after signing the lease, and without warning, my family receives a letter in the mail thanking me for my application, then swiftly denying me without cause. I immediately called my leasing agent, and she confirmed that the letter was incorrect. So, I was left to ponder whether the letter was sent in error or part of a more sophisticated scam (to access my SSN and personal information). My leasing office assured me that it was a user input error on the part of Corelogic Rental Property Solutions, LLC.
The leasing office, moreover, indicated that CoreLogic must have entered my information incorrectly the first time, then entered it correctly a second time. The letter does not have a date on it, which makes verifying when/if an error occurred difficult. Overall, a very stressful experience that was not at all necessary and solely an error on the part of CoreLogic.
The letter reads like so: "ADVERSE ACTION LETTER. At this time we are unable to approve your application. The reasons for our decision were based in whole or in part on information obtained from the consumer reporting agency identified below [Corelogic Rental Property Solutions, LLC)]. The reporting agency played no part in our decision and is unable to supply specific reasons why adverse action was taken... You have a right under the Fair Credit Reporting Act to a free copy of your report from the reporting agency, if you request it no later than 60 days after you receive this notice..." On a positive note, the customer representative was very helpful and put in a request for a history of the credit reports to be mailed to me. If the records do not indicate an erroneous initial report, however, I will need to worry about a data breach either with CoreLogic or my leasing office--not fun.
This company gets - stars from me, but I had to choose 1 because my review wouldn't submit! We tried to rent an apt. Corelogic apparently found criminal records on me from Florida on a woman of a different race, but with the same first and last name, birth date, and age as me. The charges range from cocaine possession, assault, and IDK what else as they haven't sent me my report as they said they would. I've been reading other reviews on the site and a lot of other people have said the same thing about this company. I have never even been to Florida. This is totally INSANE!!!! Apt. complexes that use this company should do some thorough research on them because they are screwing up people's lives up by reporting inaccurate, and false information! Now we have a little over a week to find a place to live before our lease is up. This should be illegal and they should be sued!
Yesterday I can send it to a background check and a credit check through "Core logic" and for the first time ever they reported I had a felony for manufacturing a controlled substance in Virginia and to top it off the charge was a person of a different ethnicity, when I called to fix it they were rude and not compassionate at all. They are professional liars and con artists. I've read nothing but horror stories about this company. I wish I had the means to sue. Luckily I was able to tell the landlord that it was a person of a different ethnicity than me and she understood. But I read horror story after horror story about people that lost their application fee and didn't get their house because this company reported false information. They claim they don't use your social to do a criminal background check but above the charge is the last four digits of my social, it would be common logic to use the social security for due diligence.
This company is literally anti-American. You have to prove your innocence as opposed to being innocent until proven guilty. Not only do I believe they are suppressing amendment rights. And to top it off they're mostly targeting low-income families that they know don't have the means to get a lawyer. I have never been in trouble in my life and now I have to prove that I didn't commit a felony in Virginia when I've lived in Ohio my whole life and it may affect me getting my rental property that I've been waiting on. I was told to send in my ID and wait 30 days. These are sick sick people. If anybody has any information about how I can go about maybe writing my local Congress representative or any local government agencies I could call please give me some information. This company needs shut down before they can hurt another family.
Most of the apartment complexes I've applied for uses this company to check rental credit. After further review, I do not have any rental credit history that should be holding me up from renting. Disappointed in the time wasted and the endless amounts of money I have to invest into security deposits and these non-refundable application fees. I will be discussing my finding with the Equal Housing Opportunity Commission, FTC, BBB, to determine the legality of the credit check findings. Some of the properties I'm getting push back from are: Bozzuto, TGM, Southern Management.
Just applied to brand new apartment complex and approved except for (1) item-landlord rental debt. Complex gave us phone # to CoreLogics and # of transaction. Called them, read full report and NO RENTAL DEBT, but they refuse to call the complex. This is during COVID-19 when we need to apply & get a place soon. In the meantime, we have lost money and will lose more to have this straighten out. Everything has to be done online. CoreLogics needs to be gone. They ruin lifes.
Updated 04/15/2020: After I submitted a previous review of this ridiculous and harmful company to the American People and their livelihoods, I contacted the FTC, U.S. Consumer Finance Dept., Dr. Phil, both Houses of the U.S. Congress, my local NBC news affiliate on your side personnel TB, DFS, and more. I am continuing, time permitting, now that I FINALLY became employed again for the first time in over 3000 days at a job that could bring income that I was making when wrongfully terminated from misinformation listed multiple times by this company about me that stated I was a convicted child molester, convicted second degree sexual assaulter of children, & a lifetime registered sex offender. This nearly led to my death numerous times over the years, and the girls working there are new and are "TERRIBLY sorry" and to get with an attorney.
I asked to speak with someone who's been there for 6 or 5 years so that they can remember being fired by ADP, but they send me to some guy who's only been there 2 years. My new report is 28 pages long from the CIRCULATION OF THE FRAUDULENT REPORT WHICH VIOLATED THE FCRA. At least they do know that providing false information on background reports that are defamatory, carry a two year prison sentence for those responsible. I guess that should mean their company President who has not responded to my call. Instead, I keep getting letters to dispute something that was disputedly wrong causing multiple subsequent adverse events, thus creating the new 28 page report of ridiculousness that I don't care for or about if it doesn't go to ANY EMPLOYERS.
This company should be banned for life from ruining anyone else's career like mine was. I'm supposed to be semi retired now, instead, I'm starting all over at age 51 in a totally different field which I hope works out. It's a shame since I knew so much about the field I was in before. Imagine spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on classes, shelter, food, utilities, and cable for five year (not to mention 8 hours of studying per day/night or more outside of class) plus another $30k in state approved courses, exams, fingerprinting, losing four separate licenses and designations (5 months of night/weekend schooling) while working during the week, with 320 hours of continuing education requirements completed between 1994-2019.
Gradually, over the past 6 years, my career was taken away piece by piece until when on March 12th, it was completely revoked meaning that I have to retake every course, every exam, and go through the 9 month long processes or longer to receive licensure MAYBE, meaning I could go take the courses again, pay the hundreds of dollars and hundreds of dollars again to take the exams, pay for fingerprints AGAIN, IN TWO YEARS. THIS DOES NOT GUARANTEE LICENSURE EITHER SO I COULD BE WASTING MORE MONEY IF DENIED AGAIN.
I've written my attorney from 2013 whom was not aware of what was going on with me (and neither did I) along with the judge for an illegal search and seizure of myself since the police believed that I was a child sex offender. I was bullied, lied about, lied to, captured and tackled by 10 officers while kissing my girlfriend goodnight on my parent's property just 45 days after being surrounded while pumping gas. The police reports are all false as well. ONE THING IS FOR SURE.... I wish that this happens to nobody else ever. Libel, unfortunately, is word I know too well and didn't know at all beforehand. It's almost a death sentence. I am so lucky to be alive and healthy as one could be after going through adversities too explicit to discuss here. I got to live in a world that I consider "Hell on earth".
Just 3 weeks ago, events that occurred directly from the release of CoreLogic's false disgusting background report without doing any research on who I truly am, where I came from, whom I related to, where I attended college, how many different companies I worked with in my life, how few complaints (0) were made about me in 30 years while dealing with over 10,000 serviced clients and customers without a complaint, and how hard I worked to get to the point of financial success which was taken away in an instant from someone reading the disgusting, false, & horrifying background report that I can't believe of all the people on this earth, that I would even be considered a child sex offender and even horribly worse; multiple, multiple times over.
I feel lucky to be alive yet remorseful that this company believes it has done nothing, I mean nothing wrong. For Christ's sake, they were in federal court for fraudulent misinformation/disinformation in 2016 in Virginia for libeling 1.7 million professionals. I will continue to seek justice against this disgustingly cloaking itself always company which doesn't make it known when it libels anyone by putting their name, corelogic, anywhere next to its compiled falsehoods meant to cause detrimental harm.. Nothing other.
I hope that Mr. ** gets the maximum punishment: 2 years in Federal Prison.. hopefully State prison. I will stop at no ends to make sure the laws are followed with regard to this. I want to give them a taste of what I went through but it was 8 years and continues to this day. Amazing how the police stopped HARRASSING me after they realized it was a different person with my name and d.o.b. since my name is so common that there's probably 500 to 5000 people with my name and date of birth. One of them is a very bad person and deserves the treatment I got. Not the person I am.
I've cried way too many times over losing everything that I worked for because of the report's information CIRCULATED without my knowledge for several years. Even then, after it was amended, I was unable to recoup my position at my old job where I had $50k stolen from me in commissions over the next 3 months. Instead, my mental health and physical health dove 3 months after being wrongfully terminated and punished for succeeding. To top it off, attorneys have had no idea as to whom was the responsible party. Not until 2019 was I notified of those accountable worthy of PRISON TIME. YES. PRISON TIME.
Printing, publishing, and circulating libelous information is punishable from laws enacted by congress in 1970, amended several times since. I have received "Dummy" letters from corelogic which have no particular person to contact back since it's just some lame generic letter with no meaning since the people argue with me stating today that "They never worked with ADP ever". CSR is named steve and he's a royal ** Full of more lies and deceptive jargoning making no sense whatsoever contradicting himself regularly.
Original review: CoreLogic has ruined my 20 year career as a licensed health, life, annuity, property & casualty insurance agent/adjuster. Because of its erroneous, libelous, and horrifying Crimlink sex offender section of an ADP background report, I went from making six figures to homeless, jailed, unemployed, physically and mentally ill, and lucky to be alive surviving wrongful termination, police harassments, family division, estate will removal, Dept. Of Financial Services licensure recantations, and approximately $3 million in damages or more.
I have wasted my time by working my way through the the Univ of TX at Austin in 5 years while working full time; $5000 in insurance school costs I started taking State courses in 1994; and am reduced to nothing but a minimum wage laborer with an IQ of 130. Thanks, Corelogic for ruining everything. I've worked my rear end off for. I doubt I'll ever have the opportunity to make $150k-$200k per year again when their report disgustingly stated in bold print that I was a convicted child sex offender multiple times. They have not done anything to make up for this and somehow hid behind the scenes and attorneys are afraid of them. Why would they be? 100 or more are or believe this scumbag of a company.
Ever since moving to Texas I've had problems with housing and employment. I've been terminated from every employer when my background has been checked. I've been denied housing unless I've provided a background check that I've had to dip into my own pocket for. The unifying condition? Core Logic background checks and services. I've not been arrested or convicted since 1996 in the state of Illinois. I haven't even been given so much as a traffic ticket.
So when I applied at Colonial Grand at Onion Creek parkway in Austin Texas? What do I happen to find? I'm accused of being a pedophile in 2017 in Virginia and that I've jumped bail in that same year in Kentucky. Never mind that I've never lived in or visited Virginia or Kentucky. I've been going toe to toe with Core Logic and have even dealt with them over the phone ensuing in a 4 hour phone battle with a representative that told me that "I needed to take it up with the federal government" only to then admit that they only check first name, last name and date of birth. I now have to move to another state that core logic does not have as much of a foothold in to be able to move on with my life.
