This Rental Reference is for use by a landlord or property manager who wishes to recommend one or more tenants. It may be used in connection with residential or commercial leases. Tenants often request a rental reference from previous landlords or property managers, when the tenants apply for new rental properties.
This document provides a simple way for the landlord or property manager to provide details about the property which the tenant previously rented, and about how the tenant performed.
Various details can be included, such as the rental amount for the previous property, whether or not rent was paid on time, whether the tenant kept the property clean and tidy, and whether the landlord had to file any formal notices in relation to the tenant.
Use this document to recommend a previous tenant and to provide an overview of how it was to rent to them.
How to use this document
In many cases, prospective landlords like to follow up on rental references by actually phoning the previous landlord. Therefore, the person preparing this document should first consider whether they are willing to discuss the tenant, and if so, they should take care to enter accurate contact information.
Once the document has been prepared, several copies of it may be printed and signed. One copy may be provided to the tenant, who may then provide it to new prospective landlords. The person sending this letter may keep the other copy for their own records.
Rental references in Australia are generally not subject to any specific laws. It is important, however, to always be truthful and accurate in the recommendation.
In addition, each state and territory has its own residential tenancy legislation, and commercial tenancy legislation, both of which apply to many aspects of landlord and tenant relationships.
