What type of "background" are you attempting to obtain?

none of the commercial services I know of is completely free, although so may have trial offers if you only need to use it once.

You can get basic information, like address and age, free for most people. I also frequently see potential relatives listed but I do not know if I would rely on it.

I usually just google the name and state and end up at a variety of web sites. Just tried it and ended up at fastpeoplesearch.com. It seemed like it had the information you might be looking for at no charge.

My father who used to own apartments told me he would call the police and ask. They would tell him about any arrests or convictions.

I agree that the quality of the info online is highly variable. The ones of folks I know often have people who are somehow connected listed as living together, though often it lists many more as living in the household than actually are. It also lists folks wholly unrelated and who don’t even know each other as related.

Caveat emptor, however you decide to proceed. For simple name, contact info and age, I can often search the web and find the info for free—checking what comes up and if it is consistent I guess it may be correct.
