A: Help! I’m breaking my lease, but the new landlord needs a reference from my previous landlord!
B: In case you havent figured out – most tenants put on a cell number of a friend for the reference, then claim that person was the landlord for either your present place, or a previous place. Same for work reference for tenant applications. Think about it for a second – most places you rent are private residential properties. The owners aren’t too thorough! I trust you know what do, something that is already done by probably 70% of the other applicants!
