Rigorous tenant vetting sets the foundation for a profitable rental portfolio. With the Residential Tenancies Amendment Act shifting the risk of renting dramatically onto landlords (by removing the safety net of the 90-day no-fault notice), vetting tenants is more important than ever before. 

This webinar aims to show you how to credit and background check tenant applicants in order to offer the property to the best applicant on merit and secure your rental income stream. You will gain an insight into the latest Illion Tenancy database features and find out how to interpret the reports. 

Session topics
  • What is tenant checking and why is it important 
  • Legislation and responsibilities on landlords 
  • How to do a tenant check (what information to collect, how to verify identities etc) 
  • How to understand a tenant check report (including credit score, the bad tenant database, Tribunal and social platform search results, aliases, company affiliations etc)
  • Q&A

Cody Knight is the Operations Manager and Josh Hodgson the Director of Sales at Illion Tenancy

The Tenancy Practice Service and TPS Credit Control work closely with the Auckland Property Investors' Association. Our vision of bringing helpful resources, documents and high quality services to Auckland Property Investors and Property Managers is shared by APIA, so its a partnership that works well. 

The Auckland Property Investors' Association is a great organisation for those who want access to advice and information from a range of industry experts and partners.

Through the Association I found the channels and methods to fund the purchase of property I never dreamed about. Grant Brown

All round it has been one of those things Neil and I felt was really worthwhile belonging to. We have learned so much it has just built our confidence in what we are doing.

I read two articles in the monthly magazine that saved me over $5,000. That is my membership fee for the next 26 years and I am sure I will learn a whole lot more! John Duncan
Fantastic organisation. The networking opportunities are brilliant and provide us with information and opportunities that cannot be obtained anywhere else. We learn something new at every meeting and we've been in this game for nearly 20 years. Pauline and Gyanen Kumar

I find the information obtained from various APIA meetings very useful in guiding my own property investment and rental management.  I also enjoy the networking opportunities with like-minded investors.  I am inspired by other investors’ success and find the more experiences and knowledge that I share with others, the more confident I become.  

Thanks to all APIA event organizers and administrators for your brilliant work.

I like talking to people and learning from their experience because it gives me the confidence to invest well. I think it is a knowledge thing. I now know I am doing things the right way.

Stephen Weatherall

My APIA membership has become a total success.

Every time I attend a monthly or regional meeting I come away with so many useful and positive tips that have added value to my property investments and management.

Not only that, the website is a great place for practical advice and useful information. It has now evolved into an important resource for my business.

Talk about value for money! The discounts I have been getting at Bunnings when I present my APIA membership card have more than paid for my annual subscription!
