    Default For what reason can a LandLord give a bad reference?

    Can I ask to see the reference given from the previous landlord as been turned down new tenancy?

    Are you sure it is a bad reference from a previous LL and not adverse credit report?

    Yes the last LL threaten to make things difficult for my daughter who is renting near her univeristy because she had been a couple of times late with rent. We are only talking a few weeks at the most, her student loan came two weeks after the rent was due and they wouldn't change the rent date. Seems a bit harsh to me!

    I doubt if they can give a bad reference unless a default was raised. I would check my credit file first. If the credit file is okay, then you may have a case against the previous LL but I am not too sure how you proceed. Maybe CAB can give you some advice.

    I was going to ask what particlar issues do you think would mean a landlord would turdown a tenancy, and then you answered with late payment of rent. While a landlord is under no obligation to give a reference whatsoever, if a reference is given, and its factual i.e. late rent, than you have very little comeback.

    Even if the rent was only a week late? Being classed as a late payer could mean weeks or even months late?
