Photo ID from tenants is important

Most property managers request and obtain photo ID from prospective tenants when they submit a tenancy application. When doing a Tenant Check on a prospective tenant, it is good practice to use the tenant's personal details as shown on their photo ID rather than what is written on their tenancy application. This will help to ensure you receive an accurate Tenant Check report because you have the correct spelling of their legal name and their correct date of birth. You can upload the tenant's photo onto illion Tenancy after doing the Tenant Check on them. A discount off the cost of your Tenant Check will be given for the photo upload.
