Public records are information that has been filed or recorded by local, state, federal or other government agencies, such as corporate and property records. Public records are created by government agencies (such as vital records, immigration records, real estate records, driving records, criminal records, etc.) or by individuals (such as magazine subscriptions, voter registration, etc.). Most essential public records are maintained by the government and many are accessible to the public either free-of-charge or for an administrative fee. Availability is determined by federal, state, and local regulations.
Navigating the maze of regulations and administrative policies to obtain public records can sometimes be difficult. As a result, many people choose to rely on companies that do the "heavy lifting" of obtaining, sorting and compiling information from specific public records for a fee.
