Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)


There are several reasons to consider.  Unrecognized address - GBR uses the USPS standard address format and if an address from a program doesn’t match or it has not yet been officially recorded, it won’t be accepted into GBR. It could also be that we don’t yet receive data from that program, or in that part of the country. It could also be that data isn’t available for that timeframe. See below for a matrix of historic data availability by program.

Each HES program has its own administrators throughout the country. GBR is working to establish data relationships with all of them, however some may not yet be providing data to GBR.

GBR displays data on the most recent information provided by the program administrators. As long as we have received the new rating/score, that is what will be displayed in GBR.

Program administrators and GBR respect homeowner privacy settings. If a homeowner does not wish for their score/rating to be publicly displayed, ‘Private’ will be noted. The homeowner can modify this setting by emailing a request to the email address noted on that record.

If a property record is indicated as ‘Private’ then that data is not publicly available and therefore not populated on this document.

See the table below for a matrix of the data sources and types available in GBR.
