I have rented out my flats using an agent to find tenants in the past.
This time a current tenant is suggesting a prospective newvtenant to me so I am looking at doing all the references and checks myself.

Part of the RLA guide to Landlords says "Ask for their NI number". These tenants are Bulgarian, will they have an NI number, as such?

The person has only been in the UK for about 6 months, so there is an element of risk,built in. The guy who recommends him is a very good tenant, but I realise this may not say anything about the "new" person!
