What is RentCheck?

RentCheck is a tenant report – it’s the easiest way to view reported breaches in your rental history.

It will help you check your tenancy record before you apply for your next rental property. Identify possible problems before property managers do a public records check can help avoid a possible roadblock to your application.

Your RentCheck covers:

    • Tenancy database history: If you think (or know) that you have problems listed on the National Tenancy DatabaseRentCheck is an easy way to check so you can be prepared to explain any issues to a prospective property manager.
    • Identity verification: Can your identity be verified? Property managers and landlords want to know who they’re approving into a property. This will check your identity can be verified ahead of time.
    • Court and Bankruptcy information: Have you ever been to court? Court-related matters will appear on your tenancy report. Any debt agreements or bankruptcies recorded against your name will also be shown. With this information at hand, you can explain any listings to your prospective property manager.
