SERVICE PROFESSIONAL PRESCREENING PROCEDURES AND DISCLAIMERS
HouseAndLawn.com may use but not limited to the following criteria as part of its registration enrollment process ("registration") for new service professionals applying for membership in our network:
State Business Filings* - For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the service professional is in good standing in the state in which it is located. This check applies to service professionals that are corporations and Limited Liability Companies (LLC’s).
Identity Verification - We conduct a business phone lookup to confirm that the phone number provided matches the phone listing for the business.
Search for Business Aliases* - Houseandlawn may search state Doing Business As (DBA) records in the state in which the service professional is located to identify any aliases under which the service professional is doing business. The presence of records for this search does not necessarily mean anything negative. It is not uncommon for a business owner to operate using a d/b/a or to have multiple businesses filed with d/b/a’s. As part of your diligence, we encourage you to have a complete picture of the business you choose to work with.
Verify Customer References - When available, Houseandlawn requests and contacts previous customer references provided by the business to solicit performance feedback from consumers with whom the service professional has worked.
NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed at the time of enrollment as described above may change or expire over time; while Houseandlawn attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we perform screening solely at the time the member applies for membership in the Houseandlawn network, and! therefo re, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented in the service professional's profile is still current and/or acceptable to you.
