You can ignore the phone call request as it is automatically generated by the website. Firstly, you will want to check the lease. Usually there is a break clause in the lease which means you can give one months notice after a period of 6 months. If this is the case then you have nothing to worry about. All you will need to do is show the judge this. However, lets assume there is no break clause. If your daughter has paid for repairs (not superficial) then these should really have been paid by the land lord and therefore can be decucted from the amount he is seeking. Secondly, if the landlord was harassing her, then you can take the approach that this harassment amounted to a breach of contract and therefore she decided to terminate the contract due to this breach, if this is shown to be the case then he cannot claim against her for the remainder of the balance, however you will have to show that he did actually harass her (even if she believed his actions to be harassment due to her mental health ailmennts). If he has raise court action you will have to defend it. Don't let this panic you, the worst case scenario would be for the judge to find in the landlords favour and she would have to pay the balance. If she does not have the means to pay it then you can make arrangements to pay it up over time. However, you can defend the case using all of the above defences, it will be up to you to put together your own evidence to defend the matter. You can, of course, hire a solicitor if you want to however, if not then you can defend this yourself just ensure that you gather as much evidence as you can to support your defence. You can also use all of the defences you don't need to chose just one.
