Tenant References Check and Summary

Besides tenancy database checks, the most critical action to take when screening your applicants is a reference check. Uncomfortable, time-poor or lacking experience in this area? Let us do the dirty work!
We’ll contact your potential tenant’s current and previous property manager or landlord, current employer, and personal references. We’ll then provide you with a summary of the results including:
 – How your applicant has been as a tenant in the past
 – If rent was paid on time (including rental ledger where possible)
 – How well the property was maintained
 – If the bond was repaid in full
We’ll also verify the applicant’s employment and character through their personal references. (Up to two reference checks per property).
Please note these checks include employment checks but not proof of income, payslips can be requested from the tenant by you.
