Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Has she paid anything please?
Sorry I meant has she paid anything to the Agency/Landlord!
1 - No, they have said its void, so she does not need to do anything
2. If the contract is void they can demand the return. If the contract is void then its not binding
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
I would demand the return as well. If they are saying the contract is void then the friends can get out too
Does that clarify?
If I could invite you to rate my answer before you go today please, otherwise the site does not credit me for the time spent with you today. Thanks and good luck.
