Question: How can I find out if my date has a criminal record?

Can you find out if someone did a background check on you?

The easiest way to know whether someone has run a background check on you is to hear it from them directly. Background checks are most common in the hiring process. When running a background check, an employer is beholden to the Fair Credit Reporting Act, or FCRA.

How many years do you have to declare a criminal record?

Most will only ask for unspent convictions, although some might ask for any convictions in the last 5 years. If its spent, you do not need to disclose it under any circumstances when applying for insurance. We have more detailed information on insurance available here.
