Hi Ikram, thanks for your post!

You may find our Help Centre section that’s dedicated to referencing advice for tenants helpful to see how referencing works in general:

https://help.openrent.co.uk/hc/en-gb/categories/115000051712-Referencing

It is completely up to the landlord in question whether they choose to reference tenants, so it may be worth speaking to the landlord directly before applying to a property.

A landlord can also still choose to rent to you if one or all tenants fail referencing, however, this is completely up to the landlord so we’d recommend again talking to them directly.

Good luck in your search for a property!
