Background checks popular among Wellington landlords

Recent stats show that Doublecheck was used 4.8 x more by Wellington landlords this week than when it first launched in December.

The rapid rise in the tool’s popularity coincides with an increase in TradeMe property listings for the Wellington region.

There are currently over one thousand Wellington properties listed for rent on TradeMe, with landlord Steven Webb praising the app’s services during the tenant-finding period.

“I found Double Check to be a useful tool at this busy time of year. Finding new tenants takes a lot of work, but I found using Double Check made my life a lot easier.”

“…These days there are many sources of tenant info, but Doublecheck brings it all together in one report,” says Webb.

Connected to three national databases holding over ten years of records, landlords can conduct their own background checks by going to www.doublecheck.co.nz.

After filling in their own information, all the landlord requires from the tenant are their basic details, a valid license, and their approval to begin the search.
