How to complete your Landlord Reference
Updated over a week ago

You will only be required to complete Comprehensive referencing along with your Essential Referencing if your Agent or Landlord requests this, so don't be alarmed if you do not see these requirements in yourRentPassport.

Follow the step below to complete your landlord reference section and send your referee a reference request.


Step 1:
Firstly, log in to your RentPassport and select Landlord Reference. You will find this towards the bottom of the page.

Step 2:
Next, click "Get and Landlord Reference". On the next page, you will be asked if you have rented in the last 12 months. Select 'Yes' and click "Next".

If you have not rented in the last 12 months please select 'No'. This option will then be reflected on your RentPassport and no further steps will be required.

Step 3:
Now you will see all of your previous addresses. Select your most recently rented address. If you do not see the address, you can add it from here by clicking 'Add address'.


Step 4:

Once you have selected the correct address, tell us a bit more about your tenancy. Select how often you pay your rent and enter your rent amount.

Step 5:

Now you will be required to enter the details of your chosen referee.

For more information on who is a suitable referee please see Comprehensive Screening: Landlord Reference.


The details must include their full name, phone number and email address.

Step 6:
Once you have completed this, click "Submit reference invite". A reference request will be sent to your employer with a link to our digital referencing form.

To ensure your reference is completed as soon as possible, notify your referee to look out for the request in their inbox. After your referee has completed the form, our referencing team will review this to ensure this within 48 business hours.
