Hi, this is Jim, thank you for the question - I will resolve this for you.

Sorry to hear of the issue. If she is also living there then she needs a lodger's agreement. A tenant has exclusive use of the property but if a room is being rented only and your Daughter still lives there (shares the living space, etc) then a lodger's agreement is the way forwards. There is a template available to tailor and download here:

I hope this helps and answers the question - please feel free to ask me anything else.

Have a good day,
Jim

No problem, let me know if you have any more questions or if you want me to check over the agreement once finished.
Have a good day,
Jim
