I am hoping I can get some help or advice from someone here :)



My daughter has just renewed her tenancy(December 2014). She has had a friend staying with her as a 'permitted occupant'.



The situation now is that the friend has gotten herself pregnant(not planned) and has left the property without giving any notice to my daughter, she simply took her belongings whilst my daughter was at work and she refuses to answer any calls to her mobile. So we don't know whether she is coming back but it seems very unlikely.



This leaves my daughter in a difficult situation as she now has to find the rest of the rent, as if it wasn't hard enough as it was, and it would appear that, as she is the only one on the tenancy, she is going to have to stay there until next December.



My question is does this friend have any legal obligation to pay her half still? or can she just walk away from this? And she does have an obligation what's the best way to make sure she adheres to it?



I hope I have explained this clearly enough, apologies if I haven't. As you can imagine im pretty angry at this friend of my daughters but I no there's a right way and a wrong way of doing things and im determined to do it the right way.



Thanks for any help that be given, I really appreciate it :)

A moral obligation perhaps but no legal resp (unless a lodger agreement was in place).

Dau could replace her with another lodger under rent a room scheme, which means approx. £80/wk of 'rent' paid to dau is tax free if declared on annual return.

Best to inform LL if 'permitted occupier' changes.

Dau would remain as sole T and resp for rent & property for remainder of fixed term, unless LL is prepared to accept early surrender on his terms eg rent until new LL acceptable T moves in + advertising costs.
