Prescreen Compliance Management System
How It Works
Pre-Screen Credit Monitoring is permissible under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FRCA), provided a mortgage lender follows certain rules. The FCRA permits limited access to a consumer’s credit file … for the purpose of pre-screening … if the lender extends a firm offer of credit to those who meet pre-determined criteria. Consumer-consent is not required for a lender to obtain Pre-Screen credit information.*
Manage Your List-Criteria
Some things just shouldn’t be left to chance. Your Pre-Screen list-criteria is one of them!
MonitorBase has created precise internal safeguards to ensure that your minimum lending credit-criteria is applied to all Pre-Screen marketing campaigns (an FCRA requirement). This protects you from becoming obligated to extend credit to individuals who do not meet your credit standards.
A core risk-management feature of the system is driven by our understanding that not all employees have the same decision-making authority to approve marketing solicitations, and select the credit-criteria used to build Pre-Screen marketing lists.

MonitorBase provides your enterprise with a centralized facility for delivering firm offers of credit to prospective borrowers.

* FCRA requires users to have a permissible purpose to access consumer reports. For the purpose of making firm offers of credit, Section 604(c)(1)(B) permits users to obtain consumer reports in connection with any credit transaction that is not initiated by the consumer. Section 603(l) defines a firm offer of credit as one that will be honored as long as the consumer meets the specific criteria that was used for the selection of the recipients of the credit offer. It can be conditioned on such things as the following:
- The consumer meets the mortgage lender’s previously-established criteria. This could include, but is not limited to: maximum loan-to-value ratios; debt-to-income allowances; sourced and seasoned funds for closing; etc..
- The lender can obtain a full consumer-report on anyone responding to the offer. This supports verifying that the consumer continues to meet the creditworthiness criteria.
- A first-lien position in the real property.
