    you never want to ever let it get that far as you will never be given a good reference and you will be registered on the tenant database , it sucks but just try and keep looking and work with the agent, its in their best interest to help you
    They've already told me they won't help me out with a reference anyway. So all i've got to show for myself is a tenant ledger showing rent has always been paid 2 weeks in advance.

    The whole thing sucks!. Acquiring a rental should not be this difficult!

    They probably don't do a written reference but you can surely put them down as a contact on future applications so that prospective owners/agents can phone them. I'd double check that as many places just don't do written references anymore.good luck!

    The real estate agency that you are with may not give you a reference (which seems odd) but I guarantee you that any prospective property manager will call them to ask them about you, and if you stay until court action the current agent will tell them not to touch you.

    I appreciate that the rental situation is tough but you will not help your long term future by staying - and you will only be delaying the inevitable for a few weeks at best.

    Yep i list them on rental applications. They told me if the property sold and i had to move they would provide me with references and help finding somewhere new but now apparently, they just don't do that.

    The real estate also promised references and help if it ever came to this and now they've told me they just don't give out references. So that's really helpful of them.

    The real estate should complete a reference when your new real estate requests one. Real estates don't normally give tenants written references if that's what your expecting?

    Yes my understanding is if a new agent calls then your current property manager will discuss it with them and give you a reference but they won't put it in writing - similar to a lot of workplaces now - they will give verbal but not written. Could this be what they meant when they said no written references?

    It happened to me, we applied for an extension as time ran out and had still not found a place. We were granted a few extra weeks and thankfully found somewhere a few weeks later but we outstayed by about 4 days. They took it to tribunal but luckily withdrew after we had vacated a the 4 days later.

    Unfortunatly we didn't find anywhere in a private rental though but community housing came in and found us priority emergency housing. It was highly stressful and I feel for you as this happened at the start of the year so not long ago and is still fresh in my mind.

    I hope you find somewhere quickly. Can you ask community housing in your area? We were on a list for a while anyway so that helped, but if you are desperate they might step in and help, they seemed quite good right up at the end when we were desperate.

    We still give written references? Have you defaulted or done anything during the tenancy that would warrant them writing a bad reference? Have they got other rentals they could transfer you to?

    What I would do is see if the real estate will tell the new owners of your circumstances, or get them to call you to see if you can get an extension. If they are flexible, they may work with you and give you some extra time?

    You don't know the new owner's circumstances either, they could be moving from a rental or have already organised their move and if you just stay on, you could be putting someone else in the same situation that you are in.

    That sounds incredibly stressful. I hope you find something soon.
