This is a letter than can be used by a landlord to check the bank reference of a potential
tenant. This letter should be used with a separate authorization form which verifies that
the landlord has the tenant’s permission in seeking the bank reference. The bank is
asked to reference the tenant’s normal business engagements and in particular for the
availability of rental payments in the amount provided by the user. This letter should be
used by an entity or individual who serves as a landlord and wants to verify a potential
tenant’s bank reference.
