hi, just wondering what is best to do when looking to rent but your previous landlord made false accusations against you? Obviously a good reference from them is unlikely. Many thanks

Hello and Merry Christmas !

The best thing you can do, if there is no way to reason with them, is to form a very solid case to counter those claims in front of your new landlord / letting agent. If you can explain everything and have some material proof to back it up, you should be able to mitigate the bad reference and false accusation. 

Otherwise, maybe threaten them with a case for libel, but it’s not really worth it.
