How tenant screening works

Provide tenant details

You’ll need your tenancy applicant’s written permission to use their name, date of birth, address, and passport or driver’s license.

Once you have it:

  • Log in to your Lodge account and click on your property.
  • Select Screen a Tenant from the menu and follow the prompts.

Tips for screening potential tenants

Pay report fee

Each report costs $25AUD. Some of the things you’ll learn include whether they’ve been:

  • blacklisted as a tenant in the last 3 years
  • screened before (and by whom)
  • bankrupt or appeared in court

Get report in 60 seconds

You can access your report within a minute. We’ll email you the access details.

You can view your report for 30 days before it expires.

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.

Due diligence

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