Long term references?

I have a prospective tenant - retired nurse. I have had positive verbal reports of her as a person but… she seems unwilling to give long term references?? ie; gave last employer of three months and previous landlord or three months, who said he would rent to her again but ask for 12 month agreement. Would like to know how to go forward??

If your tenant is not providing the documents you request it is a red flag

I have always had trouble when there are gaps in referencing
Why is she changing address every three months?
It could be domestic violence or she is hiding identity for another reason eg bailiffs etc.

Personally I would avoid.
