Landlord Reference Letter Example

This tenant reference is given to verify tenancy of [Tenants' Names] and their two children in [Rental Property Address]. They were our tenants from [First Day of Lease] to [Last Day of Lease].

Their last monthly rent was in the amount of $[Rental Amount]. They were responsible and timely in their rent payments which was due the first day of each month. There was only one late payment and it was paid within 5 days of default without any reminder from us.

There had been no complaints from their neighbors and they had kept the rental unit and its surrounding area clean and tidy. We refunded their security deposit of $[Deposit Amount] in full within 14 days of their move out.

I am pleased to say that they were respectful and helpful tenants. They have never made any unreasonable demands or complaints during the duration of their stay.

Their pet dog was quiet and well behaved with no complaints from neighbors.

We did not serve [Tenants' Names] any eviction notices. We have been informed in advance that their reason for leaving is the need for a larger rental unit. If given the chance, I will gladly rent my property to them again.

Please feel free to contact me at [Landlord's Phone Number] and I will be glad to answer any other questions you may have.
