Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

This is my first property and the initial 6 month tenancy agreement is finishing at the end of this month.
As a newbie I am wondering if there is anything I should be aware of or actioning before I agree to a 12 month tenancy agreement.
Although my tenant has been very good and kept the house in excellent order I am aware that she is looking at a possible change of job and working further away from home. I’m guessing this change could effect her housing benefit and income levels as she is currently on a 3-day week. Would it be sensible at this stage to do any other checks or ask any questions for clarification before we get tied into a 12 month agreement?
I do not have copies of the original application or the references. Should I request a copy of these from the letting agent to review before proceeding further?
The rent is covered by RGI.
