Comprehensive tenant credit and background checks for private landlords
75% of New Zealand landlords manage their own rental properties but comprehensive background checks on prospective tenants have only been available to professional property management companies.
That's left you vulnerable to making a bad choice, simply because you couldn't find out something vital about the person you just allowed to move in to your investment property.
Now, GoodTenant gives you access to the most rigorous background checks in the rental industry, letting you screen your potential tenants like a professional property manager.
Proud to offer NZ landlords access to tenancy.co.nz - NZ's most comprehensive background and credit checking system for tenants.
GoodTenant credit checks your tenants with 2 of NZ's leading credit agencies.
Next, we check over 10 years' worth of Tenancy Tribunal orders to identify tenancy issues.
Then, we access landlord reviews, for problems that may not have gone as far as the tribunal.
We then search news and social media for links to stories about your potential tenant.
We search over 25,000 High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court judgements, including drug charges.
We check to see whether any arrest warrants are outstanding for your prospective tenant by the NZ Police.
We search the Sensible Sentencing Trust's database of violent criminals at large.
Finally, we back up all of our checks with a comprehensive phone-based interview with your tenant's referees.
