Decision making made easy

Determining whether a prospective tenant is suitable or not is something that’s often left to chance, and based on first impressions, timing and price.

With RentCheck, landlords have access to information that was previously only available to the professional real estate industry. The comprehensive tenant report removes the ‘what ifs’ from the tenant selection decision.

You can use RentCheck to screen potential renters, confirming items such as their tenancy database history, identity, court records, rental payment defaults and bankruptcy.

With identity fraud on the rise, RentCheck also includes identification verification through the Australian Document Verification Service, ensuring the tenant’s ID documents are valid. General Manager, Products and Services, Scott Waters said the verification of personal details for a rental agreement is a crucial step in the tenant management cycle.

“RentCheck helps to mitigate the risk of fraud and avoid unnecessary stress in the tenant selection process by establishing that there are no hidden circumstances that could impact rental payments,” he said.

Mr Waters said the RentCheck product is also being used directly by tenants across Australia, who purchase their own reports: “This background research, when coupled with good communication, can go a long way to avoiding future issues and ensure a positive outcome for everyone in the leasing process.”
