I am just referencing a married couple who want to rent my house. I have 2 questions

  1. One tenant is Polish - am I correct that they have a permanent right to rent in the UK (I have a copy of their passport)? Do I need to see their marriage certificate?
  2. The couple have been working abroad for 8 years and therefore have no previous addresses in the UK (the British husband used his friends address for any mail, but never lived there). How do I go about doing a credit check? Can I even do one?

I am going to see them tonight to complete paperwork - do I need to ask anything special to progress this application?

Thanking you in advance.
