So will your latest paycheck, employer’s letter, etc. Also try to get as much details about the property you seek to rent from your landlord. For example, is there a pet policy that will force you to send Clifford or Garfield away? A referral letter from you current landlord will also help you in case you are competing for the same house with another annoying potential renter.
