Tenant Reference Letter


A previous landlord usually writes a tenant reference letter on behalf of the tenant with a favorable reference. This letter is often required by future or potential landlords or real estate agencies who would want to be assured of a good tenant before considering renting any premises to the tenant. This letter can be considered as the same as a job reference letter. Your tenant will be given place for accommodation only if you write a letter which favors them.

The letter will be handed over to different people whom you may or may not know, so it’s better to write it by using good language so that they will consider you also to be a real person who will help your tenant get a house more easily. If you are not feeling confident enough to write a letter like this, then you can refer to the sample letter that is given below.

RE: Tenant Reference for Mr. & Mrs. Marshall

Hope this letter reaches to you at the best of your health

This letter serves to confirm that Mr. and Mrs. Marshall were my previous tenants on 390, High Street, Los Angeles for two years from January 2008-January 2010. They were a newly married couple who worked as attorneys in their law firm around Los Angeles then. Now they have been blessed with a baby boy, and his name is Milano.

As a young couple and in the legal profession, Mr. & Mrs. Marshall enjoy an active social life while working hard. For instance, when my wife was not well, they were here at our home taking care of her just like or to be more accurate they were more than family members. Here, a rental has been prompt on a quarterly basis, and the rented premise is well kept with a live-in maid.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Mr. & Mrs. Marshall personally, and they are pleasant personalities. I am certain that they won’t cause any trouble in your household properties and they can be blindly believed. They are seeking a bigger home to cater for more social activities and also because they now have a larger family with the addition of Milano.

I hope that the above information is helpful for you to do the needful.

Thanking You,

Yours Sincerely,

Kyle Jones
