Why do a background check?

Feel confident that you’ve made the right choice

Background checks are a lawful way of ensuring that you find great tenants with a history of paying their bills on time. Protecting people’s privacy is important, and so is protecting your investment; TenantCheck does both.

Meet your insurance obligations

Property is a large investment of your time, money and effort. With the potential risks associated with rent arrears, damages and not meeting your insurance obligations, it’s too expensive not to use it.

How it works

Conducting a background or credit check is simple and straightforward.


Select a check type

Before you request one we need some basic details about you and your tenant.


Request approval

If you haven’t already got your tenants approval, we confirm with them first.

Don’t just take our word for it, read how TenantCheck has helped real property owners.

I found TenantCheck very simple and easy to use.

I like having the option to conduct a quick check and follow up with a more in-depth search if needed.


Wellington, NZ

The TenantCheck service is helpful as the base level search is far more comprehensive than any individual could achieve on their own.

It’s a massive aid for inexperienced landlords, or those who manage their own rentals, in finding the right person to rent their property.


Auckland, NZ

My experience with TenantCheck was stress-free, and provided me with all the information I needed to have confidence in my selection.
