How to write a ‘Rental CV’ and why it rocks!…
In my first ever post Moving to the City Wellington I talked about handing to my new potential ‘Landlord’ of the Apartment we were really hoping would be ours our ‘Rental CV’.
Some of you may have heard of a Rental CV, others not, so I thought I would share it here as I have found it to be invaluable over the past 12 years of renting.
It lays out on one page:
- Contact phone numbers
- A few points about yourself/family on why pick us
- Rental Property history
- Contact details of each referee
This is then attached as the front page and stapled to your accompanying printed written references from said referees.
Copy off a good handful of copies of both your cover page and copies of the references and have these stapled together and ready to go when you go out ‘viewing places’.
I have had every landlord I have given it too compliment me on it. I give it when I say ‘We would love to be considered for the place’ – ‘here is our Rental CV and references’. I know it has gone along way in helping make their decision that we are the right tenants for their home and that totally rocks!…more below
