my hoysemate has moved out. She verbally said a week ago that she was happy to give 2 months notice. However now wants to give one which is fine. The rent was out up last year and she is now saying that she has been overcharged and is seeking advice however she was happy to pay the higher amount. Does she have any legal standing in this as there was never a tenancy agreement
