Just to give you an idea what is expected we have given you an example of the form. You could copy this and print it out or we can send you one. We realise that sometimes you may not have a previous landlord reference if you have not rented before.
Please do not let that stop you talking with us. We understand that sometimes people have circumstances that are not of their making .
References are there to tell us several things.
- Are you who you say
you are - note that due to new regulations if you are not from the UK then the law requires we ask for a viewing of your work permit.
- That you are not a financial risk, therefore will pay the rent.
- That you will keep the property clean and
in good order.
- That you will be a considerate tenant to your neighbours.
It should be noted that having a criminal record need NOT exclude you from a tenancy.
