Hello, Richard, my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Just to be clear, the only document signed is this AST?
It is bad news then I am afraid. If the AST has been signed and there is no other document, then it would appear she has an AST and that is the only standing.
She can not be protected if there is no evidence of the same. If the only document which exists shows she is an AST then sadly there is nothing more which can be done.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want, nor the one I want to give you, but I have a duty, to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
It would be a tenancy agreement. She would need to sign a document making it clear that she was giving it up.
However, you would need the original document in order to advance that argument.
Does that assist?
There may be a dispute, you need to speak with the landlord. The landlord would need a court order to evict anything and in that case a defence could be filed saying protected.
I’m not sure how much that would hold without the agreement.
Does that clairfy?
I would agree, yes
