Filling out an Express Pre-Rental Reference Form

You will find our form in the section FORMS at number 2

The client asking for a reference check – usually a landlord or a tenant looking to transfer his/her lease- must fill out section A of the form. The information in this section must include an email or fax in order for us to be able to send the results and it will be used on the invoice. A common mistake made in this section is omitting to write down the cost of rent (mandatory) and sending the request form twice. If the latter occurs, please communicate with our offices as quickly as possible at 1-800-267-1519 and we will gladly confirm the reception of your request form and make sure there are no double charges. It is also mandatory for the client/landlord or his/her representative to sign the bottom left-hand side of the form.

The remainder of the form is to be filled out by the potential tenant (one form per person) and it is mandatory that he/she sign the bottom right-hand side of the form giving Oligny and Thibodeau Inquiry Services Inc. legal consent to conduct the proper verifications.

It is highly recommended by the Quebec Rental Board to verify the veracity of the tenant’s personal information (name, last name, date of birth) with official identity cards such as a valid driver’s license or Medicare card. The tenant’s personal information must be clearly written and complete including a full address (civic number, street name, city, postal code). Missing information can lead to an unsuccessful search in his/her credit file or criminal record.
