I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!

All I know is that a friend has requested that I contribute to her rent, on the basis that it is ''chummage rent''. I've never heard this expression before, and I believe it to be archaic. If it isn't part of the law on rent I'll be happy with your answer to this effect. - Richard

Thank you for your patience,
1. Dear *****, there is no rent known to the law which is spelled as "chummage" rent. This seems to be some local name given to a type of rent. This is why you haven't got a response from any Expert so far. Simply helping out with rent is known as a rent contribution in law. However, the term "chummage" is not a legal term.
