Why do Landlords ask for this on the applications? I want to get out of my apt
There's a section on the rental application that I have to have my supervisor fill out for employment verification. I understand the landlord wants to know that you work but isn't the information for work history and pay stubs proof enough? I have to go to my jobs's office to get the main boss to fill out the section of my rental application but is not always available and I want to get out of the crummy apartment I'm in now. I've been in the same place for 4 years and the landlord here didn't need a boss to fill out info or even a last landlord cause I didn't have a landlord prior to moving here cause I lived with my mom. Even my landlord here is difficult to get a hold of cause he's also the maintenance man too.
I'm not worried about getting bad reputation from either my current landlord or boss, just the time limit of getting my application filled out for me to send to new complex. Also another thing is I just started this new job a month ago and my pay for my finishing rate has just increased this week since I'm done training so I will make enough to afford the new apartment. Also my credit is average not poor just between good and great. I never been late on rent payments and have kept my place clean and no issues. I really want to get out of my apartment and this neighborhood. It's me my boyfriend and our 2 kids one's a baby and I want them safe.
To others that don't understand I said I make $9 MORE not $9 an hour. I make $16 an hour now.
