Proper app launches free background check feature

Dec 13, 2018 | News

The free screening tool is connected to three national databases with over ten years of records.

After gaining the tenant’s approval, owners only need to input the tenant’s full name, date of birth, email address, and mobile number to conduct a search.

Once these basic details are filled in, users of the app will receive easy-to-read reports through email. These will detail tenancy tribunal history, court fines, police history, media, and social media presence, and anything else that the Proper team finds.

The free feature of the app is an important gain for owners feeling uneasy about the current reforms being made to renting.

“Our new background search assists the usual gut feel most owners currently rely on. With tighter rental property and insurance changes on the horizon, we hope this simple tool brings trust and convenience to New Zealand home owners,” says Proper CEO Aaron Yee.

Proper is a start-up based in Wellington. The company is building a mobile app that responds to the difficult and disjointed processes currently involved in renting, allowing landlords, agents, and tenants to do everything in one place.
