How to prepare your background reference check

What is a reference check?

First don’t be surprised by the “referencing” process you will be going through, which is a mix of verifying your identity and your credit worthiness. This process is standard in the London rental market, and is valid for everyone, whether British or foreigners.

The referencing is usually conducted by an independent agency, in order to verify that you will have the financial means to afford your monthly rent. You will need to agree in writing for these checks to take place.
