Landlord Reference Letter

Landlord Reference LetterIntroduction:

An ex-landlord writes a landlord reference letter to another who is considering renting his premises to a potential tenant. The new landlord requests for a reference on the potential tenant from the previous landlord to gauge the credibility of the new tenant before committing a rental. It is important to have good tenants to ensure that the rented premise would be taken care of and the rental is prompt.

In this letter, you should include all the details of the tenant regarding his or her behavior and attitude.  You should always provide genuine, detailed information in the letter. You should also mention that the new landlord can further write to him in the case of any queries.  The tone of the letter should be formal and concise.

Subject: Recommendation Letter

Dear Ms. Fisher,

Thank you for your letter of inquiry on a Mr. Robbie Williams. This letter serves to certify that Mr. Williams was a former tenant of my agency, renting a studio apartment on Fifth Avenue, East Street. He rented the studio for three years.

Mr. Williams is an author, and he works at home; hence, he prefers a quiet environment for his writing. He is a prompt paymaster, and other tenants have found him very pleasant through some social interactions. He paid his rent on time throughout the three years, and I never received any complaints against him in all these years.

Mr. Williams is seeking a bigger premise of which I do not have any vacancies at the moment to offer him, as he is getting married.  I wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors.

I have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Williams as your potential tenant. You can write to me at the above address in case of queries or doubts.

Yours Sincerely,

Jackie Jones

Good Stay Agency
