Hi
If it was for a fixed term then in fact she was bound to pay for the whole six months and the Landlord was entitled to forfeit the Deposit instead.
If it was not for a fixed term then your daughter can issue proceedings to recover the funds using the Money Claim Online service - details here

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
