Class 12 scores impacting apartment rental prospects in Bengaluru?

Bengaluru landlord rejects tenant for securing 75% in Class 12 as he wants someone who has scored at least 90% in class 12.

Class 12th scores are no longer just important for future prospects, but can also impact one’s ability to secure an apartment in Bengaluru. A potential tenant was initially accepted by a landlord, but later rejected due to his Class 12 exam marks.

Although it may seem unlikely, a social media user recently shared screenshots of a conversation with their broker regarding a rental property.

The broker initially informed the user that their application had been approved by the landlord, but then requested additional documentation such as the tenant’s LinkedIn/Twitter profile, a company joining certificate, and Class 10 and 12 mark sheets, as well as government-issued identification like Aadhaar and PAN card. Additionally, the landlord requested a 150-200 word write-up about the tenant.

The tenant provided all the requested information to the broker, but was informed that the landlord rejected his application due to only securing 75% marks in Class 12 instead of the 90% that was expected. The tenant’s name was not revealed, but a social media user shared the conversation screenshots on social media.
