False details on tenancy application forms

 On tenancy application forms, some bad tenants make slight changes to their details to get past the Tenant Checks. Be diligent about getting the right details to input on the Tenant Check page. We recommend requesting a photo of the tenant's driver's licence or passport when they make their application. Input their details as it is written on the photo identification. Tenant Checks through illion Tenancy can verify NZ driver's licences and NZ or Australian Passports to ensure your prospective tenant has given you their correct name and date of birth. It's always best practice to have their correct legal name on the tenancy agreement. (e.g. Tony Roberts is not the same as Anthony Roberts).
