Tenant Referencing

Tenant Referencing

Tenant referencing is the process a landlord or letting agent takes to find out and verify information about you, a prospective tenant. It confirms that this information (such as how much you earn) is correct.

By passing the relevant checks, the landlord can be confident that you will:

  • Have a Right to Rent in the UK
  • Earn enough to cover the cost of rent, and that you’ll pay it on time
  • Keep the property in good condition throughout the tenancy

There are several types of referencing that you will be asked to provide in order to prove whether you are suitable to rent your chosen property. These will vary depending on the kind of tenant you are - for example, if you’re a student, full-time employee, or self employed, or just moved recently to the UK - the checks your landlord will typically need to complete are:

  • A Right to Rent Check
  • Proof of employment or Income
  • A previous landlord reference
  • An additional guarantor reference may be requested if you do not meet certain criteria

What happens if I do not meet the criteria?
