NRLA credit checks can build a picture of previous tenant behaviour by finding address history and bad credit history. With this detailed information you can then judge what the applicant will be like as a tenant. Members using the service have access to NRLA telephone support during office hours.

The results of the credit check will provide you with a gauge score for the applicant. You can use the score to help you make a decision on whether to proceed with their application. For more information read our guide on understanding your credit check results. Use of the credit check service is subject to terms and conditions available here.
