Bank Reference Request Letter


This Bank Reference Request Letter should be printed on the landlord or letting agent's headed paper.  It is addressed to the bank manager and includes a "consent" section which must be signed by the proposed contract-holder.

The letter asks the bank manager to comment on the proposed contract-holder’s financial standing.  The response will assist the landlord in deciding whether to grant an occupation contract and whether any security (in the form of a rent deposit or a guarantor) is necessary.

Under the Renting Homes (Fees, etc) (Wales) Act 2019, landlords and/or letting agents are prohibited from charging fees for setting up new occupation contracts, which includes the cost of obtaining references.  It will be the landlord’s responsibility to meet these costs.

This Bank Reference Request Letter is in open format.  Either enter the requisite details in the highlighted fields or adjust the wording to suit your purposes.
