How we shortlist
Selecting a tenant for your property can be a daunting part of landlording. In most cases you’ll never meet the prospective tenant.
Unashamedly, we don’t mind playing detective to make sure you get terrific tenants.
For every applicant we check:
- Any red flags with the national tenancy database and the tenancy information of Australia.
- Previous rental ledgers.
- Employment and references.
- Affordability (we look for a maximum 30% rent to income ratio).
- The number of applicants is a match for the size of your home.
We also consider the proposed lease term as well as our own ‘gut feel’.
We share all applications and our detective work you. Whilst we put forward recommendations, the final decision is always yours.
