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

I recently showed my vacant property to a family consisting of an English father and Spanish mother with 2 children. After a series of strokes, the father is now on disability benefit and his wife is his carer.
They want to rent the house. The Spanish lady said she had not been in the country long and has been told she “does not exist” on the systems of banks and so would not show up on a credit search.
However, she had been a legal assistant in Spain and also, previously been a pharmaceutical assistant in this country.
Any advice on how to do any due diligence in this case. They seem a nice couple with polite children. (10 and 17)
