Most agents will typically use an independent company to take up references on any prospective tenants. This 'reference' will consist of the following:
Credit check - to ensure that the applicant has no adverse credit
Landlord reference - to ensure that their current landlord was happy with them and that paid their rent on time while keeping the property in satisfactory condition throughout the term of the tenancy.
Employment reference - to ensure that you are in permanent or contract employment for the term of the tenancy that you or the landlord is proposing and that you meet the rent to income ratio.
I hope that helps.
