Will my landlord contact my employer to tell them I moved?

Employment And Income Verification

Landlords may also ask to contact your current employer to verify the amount of income you say you are earning on your rental application. It is a good idea to let your contact person or HR representative know that you are looking for rental properties and to expect calls from potential landlords. It is not a good idea to lie on a rental application - potential landlords usually verify all information and it will only hurt you and prevent you from getting the rental.

If you are self-employed, have copies ready of your latest tax returns, and bank statements showing a comfortable stream of deposits and balances.

If you are a student, potential landlords may also request permission to verify scholarships, loans, and grants from the institution.
