Residential Tenancy Referencing Documents
A prudent landlord will want to carry out careful checks on a potential tenant (and any guarantor) before entering into a tenancy agreement. In particular, the landlord will want to know that the tenant and guarantor can afford the rent and that the tenant has a good track record as a tenant.
These Residential Tenancy Referencing Documents comprise Reference Request Letters and Reference templates allowing landlords and referees to request and give references. The templates cover references from former landlords, banks, employers and personal referees.
