Tenant reference letter
Referencing is important. That’s true for you and for other landlords. So if your tenant has been decent, then do the decent thing and give them a reference. You’re helping them and you’re helping landlords. Here’s a reference letter template for you to copy and paste. Copyright belongs to Landlord Action, so please don’t paste this on any web page.
To Whom It May Concern,
Re: [tenant names and address of rental property]
This reference letter is to confirm that [tenant names and their children if relevant] have been tenants in the above property since [date of tenancy]. The rental property is a [2-bedroom apartment].
Their last rent payment was £[rental amount], which was paid on time on [date of payment]. During the tenancy, they have been responsible and timely in their rent payments, which were due [monthly/fortnightly/weekly].
There have been no complaints from neighbours, and the tenants have kept the property and its surrounding area clean and tidy.
I can confirm that the tenants were respectful, friendly and helpful. They made no unreasonable demands or complaints during their tenancy.
[Their pet dog has also been quiet and well behaved with no complaints from neighbours.]
They informed me in advance of the reason for their move but should their requirements or circumstances change in the future I would gladly rent out my property to them again.
