Landlords generally want to have some verification of your income or employment status to make sure that you can afford the rent. They may ask for copies of pay stubs or your employer's phone number. You can decide what information you are comfortable giving them. For example, if you are comfortable you can show them a copy of your rent pay stubs and black out private information.
