  1. My daughter has just moved in with her friend. It's a bit of a complicated scenario, so please bear with me...


    The friend (A) originally signed the tenancy agreement with another person (B). A paid the deposit in full. A and B fell out and B decided to leave, I believe before any tenancy agreement ended. A paid a couple of month's rent on her own, and now my daughter has moved in, A is wanting my daughter to pay her the rent, not the lettings agency. Her reason is that she is worried about B being given half the deposit, and says that my daughter can't go on the tenancy agreement until B has signed something to say that she won't try to claim the deposit.




    Questions are:


    1. Is friend B still responsible for the rent that was due before my daughter moved in? i.e. so that if she does try to claim half of a deposit she hadn't paid towards in the first place(!) friend A can take her to the small claims court for non-payment of rent??
    2. Friend A is saying to my daughter that if she can't pay the rent this way, then friend A will have to find someone else, can she do this?
    3. What are the implications for my daughter with regards to not being written into the tenancy agreement? She's effectively sub-letting from A with no protection.
