    Curious, is this to check yourself, or a prospective tenant? I know places like Credit Simple now offer these online.

    Cheapest and quickest? That could depend on the volume of checks you do.

    Have 3 rentals & need to check applicants, thankfully, once in a blue moon - the other thread re exemplary damages was on behalf of friend of friend (tenant) in adverse conditions, seeking help when unfairly and badly treated by agent of zero compassion with bad attitude

    You can choose any two of our three options:
    * Good
    * Quick
    * Cheap.

    .....
    Try Radenbrea Studios for hand-made designer jewellery. Especially if you're looking for a great gift for your lady love.

    I used to be a high user but now am a low user! So I moved from one provider to another after I sold my business.
    If you become a member of your local Property Investors association you can get a good deal off TINZ. TINZ do of course sell to people who are not members but it costs you a bit more per check. I retain my account at Equifax because they do a few transactions that TINZ do not provide.

    I think Glenn has given you an answer.

    On a couple of occasions I have asked Orion to check on someone, but they were the only credit checks I'd ever done.

    What surprised me was that legal practices don't have such facilities available for their clients.

    Thanks Glenn & Perry

    I came across - creditsimple.co.nz - I only viewed its homepage but haven't explored, read through it or tested it, I can't recommend or diss it at this stage - Will take a look at Equifax but not this minute

    Tried to find Perry's Orion but couldn't find it on web - Will try again later
