    Default when finding a rental property...

    ...the application asks for a rental history and gives space for address, rent paid etc etc.

    Does this mean they will do the relevant research into it or do I need to find a hard copy of my rental history and attach it to the application?

    And if so - where can I find that?

    I think you just list your previous rental history and the real estates it was with. They'll do the rest. Do they also ask for previous rental ledgers?

    Just numbers/adress & they chase it up.. Though if you have a paper copy it wouldn't hurt!

    If they haven't asked you to attach a hard copy, I'd assume they will contact your previous agent. If you do need a copy, just call your current agent and they can print out a rental history for you.

    Awesome.

    They don't ask for a ledger, and DP had a ledger for her old place but it's missing. I told her she could just provide the agent and numbers and she should be okay. Except she's just told me she can't remember who the agent was, and she went to police college after that so doesn't have any history for that time (she lived on campus). She lives with me and pays rent but isn't on the lease.

    I just want to give us the best chance possible.

    Just tell them that it was such a long time ago, she can't remember who it was.

    I hadn't rented in over 6 years and it didn't seem to hinder me with getting a rental - although there was ONE real estate/owner that were real hard task masters. I still got a rental within a month of looking though.

    Good luck

    Hopefully my rental history and a cover note mentioning how DP is a police officer will be enough for us then.

    There is a database they can access.

    Should be fine.

    So if they have her name and the address of the property they'll be able to find it anyway if they search her name? Sweet. Thanks all!
