What does uk law state is considered a 19 year old leaving the family home to reside elsewhere. For example, is it considered they have left home when they pack a suitcase, or put it in writing, or they do have to give written or verbal notice etc to their parents?

A friend was asked this question this week to do with bedroom tax I believe... So they need to know if for example their daughter is sleeping over a 2 or 3 nights a week at a friends if the law considers she has left home permanently even if she still comes home to eat and still socialise with her family. Her daughter will "hopefully" be starting university next week, and is not claiming any job-seekers during the meantime.
