Business Credit Reports

For lenders and companies that extend credit to other businesses, staying on top of a firm’s credit status is critical – and challenging. Get better business intel with the Business Intel Suite from Credit Plus. Our Business Intel Suite is comprised of tools that contain verified data from a third-party source – which means it is not “self-reported” – something competing data providers readily offer but is far less reliable. Use our predictive analytics for more confident decisions.

  • BUSINESS CREDIT INDUSTRY REPORTS – Provides in-depth customizable credit information so you can make an educated decision such as business demographics, public records, trade and financial payment histories, corporate family trees, personal credit report and FICO score on company’s principal(s), and more.
  • BUSINESS PRINCIPAL REPORT – Entrepreneurs often fund their businesses using their personal credit. That’s why if you’re evaluating risk, it may not be enough to rely on the credit history of the business alone. Our Business Principal Report offers credit information on the owner, so you can make more confident credit decisions throughout the account life cycle. And, it’s a soft credit pull. We are one of the only firms offering this.
  • TRI-MERGE PERSONAL CREDIT REPORTS – Personal credit reports from Equifax, Experian and TransUnion to help evaluate a borrower’s credit history and help make a more informed lending decision.

Flood Zone Determination

Stay in Compliance with Special Flood Hazard Area Notifications

Flood zone determination can and does change over time. Changes occur for many reasons, including new development, levee reclassification and environmental changes. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is continually updating its flood hazard maps across the country to account for these changes. These maps, known as Digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps, show flood risk at a property-by-property level. Mortgage professionals are required to promptly notify property owners when FEMA issues a change in flood zone determination, either into or out of a Special Flood Hazard Area. Federal regulators have recently become more stringent in enforcing this notification rule, with some inspectors suggesting that lenders inform borrowers of these flood zone determination changes within 10 days.

Credit Plus can provide you with timely flood zone determination and other reports based on the most comprehensive and up-to-date FEMA data. This includes:

  • Basic and life-of-loan service
  • Loan portfolio review for compliance
  • Real-time flood mapping
  • High auto-determination rate
  • HMDA services
  • Nationwide coverage
  • Premier selection of flood providers
  • Census tract and HMDA data included with life-of-loan flood certificates.
