In England and Wales that would be an attachment of earnings order.
You _can_ apply for such an order even if you don't know the
defendant's NI number or indeed the identity of their employer. In
practice you'd apply for the debtor to be questioned and if they
refused to supply the relevant information you'd ask the court to
commit them to prison. Very few former landlords are sufficiently
bloody minded to do so.
