For field servicers, being able to provide a clean background check is becoming significantly more important to maintain a successful business. According to the National Association of Mortgage Field Services, its members and other contractors are “increasingly required by major lending institutions, national property preservation companies, law firms and regulatory agencies to provide a background check as part of their professional profile.”

To that end, the NAMFS has partnered with Aspen Grove Solutions and SterlingBackcheck to offer SterlingBackcheck’s background check services as part of Aspen’s industry wide background screening solution iRecord.

The NAMFS said that the new partnership should allow field servicers to use and re-use a single annual background check, which would eliminate the cost and “wasted time” of repeated background checks for multiple clients.

“Our goal is to assist our NAMFS members meet the increasing regulatory requirements and costs associated with background screening and we are excited about SterlingBackcheck’s participation,” said Eric Miller, executive director of NAMFS. “The industry standard background check solution obtainable from Aspen iRecord and now supported by SterlingBackcheck allows our members to secure one standardized and compliant background check and reuse it over and over again with multiple organizations.”
