Hi, I’m John, solicitor, and reviewing your post, and may need to ask a few questions a long the way to assist you.

Concerning your important matter, there is no such thing as a blacklist on the rental market by real estate agents. What there is though is reference checking for rental matters.

One of the key aspects with any rental application is the question of whether the bond has been paid back in full. With a bond has not been paid back in full, and this is advised to a new potential residential premises managing agent, then in this particular circumstance the agent may consider the fact that the bond hasn't been paid back in full as a concern that there were issues by the tenant with the property.

The other aspect that can be impacting on rental accommodation trying to secure it, is that where there has been disputes with the landlord, and we are such disputes have occurred the current agent that was involved, will also speak on that matter with any reference checking.

Renting a property is the same as getting employment. The employer does reference checking on the employee with previous employers, and the same thing occurs with rental leasing. When you're leasing your property the current agent you're dealing with will reference check the previous agent
