What is The Housing Registry?
The Housing Registry is used by housing providers to review applications as units become available. Housing providers will gather updated information on all household members, including income and assets, and may complete additional checks to assess a household’s ability to uphold the obligations of a tenancy agreement. This may include reference checks, personal interviews and/or reviewing information available from public sources such as Court Services Online and police websites. In addition, some housing providers may ask for consent to perform a credit or criminal record check or to obtain information from other private sources.
