Tenant Selector

An easy to use online tool that enables you to make objective and informed decisions when approving or declining prospective tenants.

Key Features

  • Online tool that captures information you already have such as applicant’s name, address and date of birth
  • Takes the guesswork out of the credit worthiness decision
  • Provides clear and concise recommendations—you do not need to be an expert on reading credit reports or interpreting credit scores

How it Works

Whether you maintain two rental units or 200, we designed Tenant Selector with your needs in mind. It is easy to use, secure and provides a real-time recommendation based on the credit worthiness of the applicant(s). Tenant Selector considers:


  • The likelihood the tenant will declare bankruptcy in the next 24 months
  • The probability the tenant will make their rent payments to you on time
  • Irregularities or confirmed misuse in names, addresses and phone numbers—or other suspicious behaviour that could indicate fraud
  • The tenant’s ability to afford the cost of rent plus other debts (Total Debt Service Ratio)


Even if your applicant does not have a credit score, Tenant Selector can still deliver an “accept” or “decline” recommendation based on all available information.
