Should I carry out a background check on my lodger?

It is a good idea to do a background check on your lodger for your own safety and security as they will be sharing your home. For example, you might want  to get a reference from their employer and/or previous landlord. The level of checking is up to you  and the number of checks you may wish to  carry out may differ from one person to the next.
