Those anyone have experience of letting to people who rely on overtime to make a living? Should they be assessed differently?

I am using and agency to advertise, reference and complete.

I have a prospective tenant who works a contract with a small basic hours, but lots of overtime. He has shown me his wage slips for the last 6 months, and he earns a lot. I have talked to their landlord, and the family seem ideal.

The agency have asked him for a guarantor because of his low basic wage, and his landlord is willing, and is being referenced, but has not been (or used) a guarantor, and seems unaware of the commitment.

If the guarantor signs I have no worries; but what if he changes his mind? My gut feeling is that the potential tenants income is no more at risk than almost anyone's. Is that sensible? Could/should I offer the tenancy even if the previous landlord refuses to guarantee?
