Private landlords are not legally required to lodge tenant information on the National Tenancy Database but can use their discretion, to alert other landlords and property managers to rent defaulters.
The two main databases in Australia are the National Tenancy Database (NTD) or Tenant Information Centre of Australia
Tenancy databases are a very helpful tool when selecting new
tenants but listing a tenant on one is not very easy.
As a minimum, you will require proof of the default and in
some cases a copy of the court order pertaining to your matter.
Also, you will need a copy of the lease showing the individual
Only people actually listed on the lease can be blacklisted.
Before you list a tenant, you must provide them with 14 days’
notice, in order to give them the opportunity to rectify the issue.
You must also update the listing if monies owing are paid
off by the tenant.
One of the best ways to avoid these types of tenants is of
course, to do a Bad Tenant Check viaRealRenta.
Smart landlords can access Bad Tenant Checks via the RealRenta platform.
