We are selling our house and will be renting for a while. We've owned this house for 4 years, so don't have any recent references. We also have 2 dogs, a goldie and a border collie, which we don't have a rental reference for.
Just wondering if anyone has tips or advice to increase our chances of being approved for a rental?
I was thinking of getting our current neighbours to write up a reference for our dogs, just saying as our neighbours they've never heard our dogs barking or seen them cause damage, that they're outside dogs and are well trained.
I was also going to attach a little letter from us just introducing ourselves and with a photo of us and the dogs.
Is this a good idea? Would it make a difference to our application?
Any other tips?
