You can create an even better application by obtaining a reference badge. If you have it, all landlords will see that you have approved references, which can increase your chances of getting the home you want.

What happens when I apply for the Reference badge?
You specify 1-3 people you want to use as references and give us their contact details. It may be former landlords or employers. We will contact them and ask some questions. If everyone gives a positive rating you will receive the reference badge. If one or more give a negative rating, you will not receive the badge.
