In Reply to: REQ: I need an example of a landlord reference letter posted by Peter on March 17, 2001 at 11:53:35:
: HElp !
: I'm moving to the US pretty soon and I need a reference letter from my present landlord. This not required in Belgium, so i have got the faintest idea what to put into it.
: My landlord is a pretty old man, who doesn't know either. So I would like to give him a copy to sign. Does anybody have an example he/she can e-mail me ?
: Thanks, I'll owe you
Whether you honored your lease.

Check out some apt rental websites: this one has a page about other paperwork expected by landlords (note: I know nothing about the quality of their rental service...):
Try the online versions of local newspapers for apt listings and ads, e.g., for NYC start with villagevoice.com/ and nytoday.com/ (NY Times)
