If he has some sort of income, a social security grant letter or a pension, those are income just the same as a job. He would still have to meet the other requirements, but most landlords accept retirement funds as income with no problem.

Landlords just want to see where the money will be coming from to pay the rent. If you can prove that legal income will be arriving on a regular basis and that income is high enough to pay the rent and pay for your living expenses, very few landlords will turn you down for not having a salary.
