I would ask why they where late a few times? How late where they?
Why are they being made to move?
If I felt comfortable with the answers then go for it.
Otherwise it's plan B.
I rent and I would still go with option B.
Haven't read all of the replies, but with option B I would be hesitant that he may sublet the other bedrooms?
I'm not sure is that is a likely thing in ur area, however with mine workers it is common.
How many times was option A in arrears? Was it a frequent thing? Or maybe just once or twice a year when rego or another big bill came in? Because that is understandable, happens to the best of us.
Have u spoken to option A's employers? Is their work long term and guaranteed? Fruit picking is only seasonal work isn't it?
If option A has a promise of long term work and the rental payments weren't a constant issue then I would go with them.
He sounds like a stable, reliable tenant and has a great rental history. I would always pick the best tenant from a business point of view, it may sound harsh but i'd rather not take a gamble when renting out out a house.

I would chose option A. I would give them a chance it sounds like they need someone to give them a fair go. I doubt option B would have any problems getting rental.
I would go with option B. I had the similar situation where we rented our house to a family we knew of... wern't friends, but we knew each other. turned out bad.
I will ring the real estate tomorrow and ask about tenant A. Dp and i have been discussing and he is leaning towards option B too.
Why does one man need a three bedroom house. The family sound perfectly fine, depending on how late they were with their arrears. They probably need the space etc.
