A RentPassport™ has two sections. Firstly Instant Screening which contains your Income/Rent Verification, Credit Check and your Rental Preferences. Secondly, is the Full Screening section. If your Agent/Landlord requests Full Screening this means you are required to provide an Employment and Landlord reference. This article highlights the requirements of a suitable employer referee.
For more information and a step by step guide on how to complete this section please see our article here.
Who can provide employment reference?
This must be senior member and be superior to your position as this individual must have access to your personal employment information.
- This can be a senior member of staff, for example, a Manager, Assistant Manager or Director. Someone in a superior position to you.
- A member of your company's HR/Personnel team. We understand sometimes line managers do not have full access to your personal employment information, hence why HR is a perfectly acceptable referee to confirm the reference details. Please note if you work within your HR team, only a senior member of HR will be deemed acceptable.
- A member of the payroll team. The reason why payroll are acceptable referees is due to the fact this is a financial reference. This team will have access to salary and wage information.
What is included in your employment reference?
The Employment reference displays your:
- Company Name
- Job Title
- Employment Status
- Employment Type
- Payment Frequency
- Start date
The purpose of the Employment reference is to give a detailed description and status of your employment.
