New Zealand's national tenancy database

An illion Tenant Check searches our comprehensive tenancy database for records of tenant checks done by other property managers, as well as tenant ratings, drug warnings, 14 Day notices, and Tenancy Tribunal orders. This information will be displayed under the section illion Tenancy Check Report. Any such information that is found will show the name of the property manager who lodged the information. Click on their name to submit an enquiry to that property manager. This feature allows you to contact your prospective tenant's past property managers. This is a great way to learn additional information that your prospective tenant may not have disclosed during their tenancy application. You can lodge your own tenancy information online under the 'Lodge' menu online. Each Lodgement will earn you an account credit.
