Trading Reference Australia (TRA) is a tenancy data base which allows subscribers to quickly confirm the identities and assess the credibility and suitability of people seeking leases from their clients. TRA is owned and operated by Gai Williams who continues to develop and expand this database in an alliance with the Real Estate Institute of NSW (REINSW) to create a single, national comprehensive database for all industry professionals.
A feature is TRA's free online application facility which combines the tenancy application with a search of the applicant’s tenancy record (Australian and International Patent Rights Pending).
By prospective tenants completing the application form, they accept accountability for supplying the correct information while entering the TRA search criteria. This saves time by speeding up the tenancy application process and is legally safer for property managers and the principals of the Agency.
