You may wonder what an employer reference can tell you about
your tenant and how it can help in the whole tenant
referencing process. Discovering more about your tenants
employment can give you piece of mind that your tenant is in
employment and is employed in the job they have told you.
When you first register your potential tenant's interest in your
rental property, you will have taken all their personal details,
previous landlord details and employment information. Finding out a
tenant's salary will allow you to calculate how much of their
monthly salary will go towards rent and if the rental is a
realistic and affordable venture. The employer reference check will
allow you to confirm that the salary stated by the potential tenant
is correct so real projections of affordability can be made.
The employer reference for landlords will also ease the mind
that the tenant is in employment on the basis stated. For instance,
a tenant may claim to be in full-time work, when in fact they are
on contract work which is not permanent making any rental payment
after the conclusion of that contact unaffordable.
The employer reference is more about confirming the financial
stability and future of your tenant. If all looks good and the
employer can confirm that the tenant works for them and is paid the
salary they stated then you can relax knowing that rent won't be
