Australia's most comprehensive tenant screening for just $25

Know who is really renting your property in under 60 seconds

Lodge is backed by BPAY Group. We take your data security seriously.

Are you inviting a good or bad tenant into your home?

Making sure you have the right tenant living in your property can often be the difference between having a great landlord-tenant experience or a negative one.

With Lodge’s tenant checking feature, we do a background check and reference check so you can learn more about your potential tenant’s history and if there are any red flags to be aware of.

It’s an easy-to-read report compiled from Equifax’s National Tenancy Database and is completely consensual – both parties have to agree to use it. Start making informed landlord decisions using data trusted by property managers Australia-wide.

Benefits of tenant screening

Honest and upfront

You need a potential tenant’s information and permission, in writing, to screen them.

Third party information check

You can independently check that the tenant is who they claim to be.

Assess tenants on their merits

You can compare tenant applications using the same criteria.

Due diligence

You can use it as a reasonable attempt at due diligence should any issues arise with the tenant.

  • Date of birth
  • Phone number
  • Current residential address

  • Drivers License State of issue or Passport country of issue
  • Consent from the tenant


Do I need consent from the tenant before I submit their information?

You’ll need the tenant’s consent before you submit their details in Lodge and generate a report (we’ll ask you to check a box to confirm you have this). This can be in the form of an email with the tenants confirmation or signed document stating you have the right to use their details to generate a screening report. You should store and keep this consent form for your own records.
