The Landlord can always do something to avoid the bad tenant.

This will give some clues as to the background of the person concerned. •To have an alternative address of the tenant in the Tenancy Agreement apart from the demised premises e.g. hometown or work address. This is to enable the landlord to track the tenant if there is a necessity to do so. What if he/she still turn into Bad Tenant? – Get a Lawyer to understand your case and advise you accordingly before you take any action.
