    Default Credit checks while renting the house

    Hi everyone

    I am moving from Singapore to Wellington, and I know that usually NZ house owners requires some reference / credit checks history etc.

    Could you please shed some light into this topic?

    Since I am moving from Singapore, what type of documents can I submit to show my credit history? may be my Citibank credit card statements?
    In Singapore, I just transfer the rent to the owner's account every 1st day of the month.

    Looking forward to hear your experiences in renting.

    Thanks!

    When we first moved to NZ we talked to the owner of the townhouse we wanted to rent and offered to provide bank statements from our NZ bank account showing the amount of savings we had set aside for our move and initial living expenses. We had enough in there to cover the annual rent if needed. We didn't yet have employment and he was a bit nervous but the bank statements did the trick for us.
