We are filling out an application for a rental house (we are not in the position to buy at this time, and we are fairly new to this area). It's a "generic" application the homeowner is using, and one of the questions asks us to list "Personal References" and then "Credit References" -- who should we put?!!? We've made friends/acquaintances since moving here for my hubby's job but haven't known anyone for longer than 6-7 months...the people who know us best live 1000 miles away.
And WHAT do we put for credit references!?!?!? We have checking/savings accounts both here and back where we lived before....but we haven't taken out any loans or anything from either place.

Make sure whatever friend or family member you use as a personal reference won't mind you putting them down. My lovely 1/2 sister didn't ask me & now I'm getting calls from her creditors to "pass along the message". BS! That's not my debt & I resent those calls. I would thing the credit reference would come from your credit report. GL on your new home. Hope your landlord is a good one.

Your DH's Bosses # or Personnel # (Tell your DH to speak to them & let them know someone may be calling for a reference). For a Credit reference leave it blank then ask the person who you are supposed to give it to who they want for a credit reference.
