magUpdated for 2021. Here is the second part of my big list of free consumer reports from over 50 different reporting agencies. The first part included your credit, banking, and subprime lending-related information. This part includes your housing, insurance, and employment history. You can request a free copy every 12 months of what these databases have stored about you and are telling prospective landlords, insurers, or employers.

Again, you may not need to check all of these, and many may not even have a file on you anyway. But for example if you are a renter then you’d want to make sure your rental history is clean and correct, or if were applying for life insurance you might check your medical reports.

Based on my situation, I have checked the following reports out of the ones listed below – CLUE Auto, CLUE Property,, Milliman IntelliScript.

  1. Wow, never knew all these existed! So, since we’re in the blogging world, are there any blog reports other than checking 🙂

  2. This is really interesting, thank you so much!

  3. I authorized an employment background check about 18 months ago. Would that “file” still be available? And if so, how would I determine which of the 11 companies that you’ve listed produced it? Should I call them all looking for my record?


  4. Just out of curiosity, did you actually order a report from every one of these, including the ones in the previous post for credit and banking? That would be a lot of work. If you did, have you found that you have a file with most of these agencies?

    • No, definitely not all, but several that I felt were most impactful for me. LexisNexis is a huge database, I would recommend them for sure. I did the major credit bureaus. I did most of the insurance databases, although many did not contain any of my information (still good to know). I don’t rent so I didn’t check any rental databases, same for payday lending, etc. I did ChexSystems but otherwise I have no problems getting opening credit or bank accounts so I didn’t do the smaller ones.

  5. Thank you for putting all of this together. Really have no idea how you found all of this (I never knew some of this existed!) but it is great to have it all in one place.

  6. Not Mahatma Gandhi says

    Panopticon: Seems we hardly need the NSA, FBI, Google, Facebook and the DEA illegally spying on us when all these for profit alternatives already exist.

  7. Where are these companies getting your rental history? Is there a main database where this information is pulled from or do you have to contact each individually to dispute information?

  8. This list is holy grail!!!

  9. Justjoeguy says

    Seems to be like Big Brother hiding in plain sight?

  10. I really do enjoy the list. You forgot to add my company though(The Koleman Group LLC).

    Would really appreciate it!
