Bad tenants can be a real problem - not paying rent on time or leaving properties in a mess. Often details on an application form aren't enough to make an informed decision on whether or not the applicant will be a good tenant.
Veda's Tenancy Identification service the National Tenancy Database is used by real estate agents throughout Australia for tenant evaluation purposes. At the time of a rental application, a tenant check will be conducted by the agent to verify the information provided and to establish the applicant's rental history. Most tenants treat rented premises responsibly and a database built on objective information provides reference for such tenants - particularly when the rental market is "tight".
The National Tenancy Database provides daily access to over 1.5 million individuals' tenancy files, along with access to over 2 million public record files and 1 million commercial credit files held by Veda.
