Rental References

:hi

Can anyone tell me what sort of references are usually asked for when you want to rent a property?

Thanks

I've rented previously, but of course had someone local or a previous landlord that could vouch for me. Considering that you've owned your own home, perhaps something from the bank showing your mortgage is/was in good standing and the tenancy agreement with the tenant that will be renting it out (if you haven't sold). I don't think it would hurt to have your credit score available to show the new landlord (if it's good! :grin ).

Hopefully others that have rented homes here will share their experience with you.
2019 … still here trying to pay it forward!

Hi Moops

Thanks for the info, that's a starting point for us.

If anyone else has any advice it would be much appreciated thanks, I'll add the suggestions to my list.

While I think of it, are credit references preferred from some uk credit check companies than others? I'm just wondering if all uk credit check companies are recognised in Canada?

Cheers

Roo
