What is a tenant check?

A tenant check involves checking a variety of databases for information on an individual using their personal details (name, DOB, address) and ID.

Think of it kind of like a credit check. In fact, they're both done by the same companies! 

Information retrieved through a tenant check includes:

  • Identity verification
  • Tenant blacklist screening
  • Bankruptcy and court record check
  • ASIC company directorship check.

Should I get a tenant check?

The importance of finding good, responsible tenants who can maintain your property both physically and financially can't be stressed enough. 

A bad tenant can cost you a lot of time, money and heartache which can generally be avoided if you do your due diligence and conduct a comprehensive background check before you sign a lease.
