Good evening, thank you for your question, are you able to attach the Agreement please?
Thank you, ***** ***** have a look.
Under the agreement all of the tenants and their guarantors are jointly and separately liaible, so if all of the students and guarantors did not pay then theoretically your daughter could be pursued for the entire amount of unpaid rent, whether this would be pursued to the point of bankruptcy I couldn't say. This would have to be looked at, at that point in time.
If you need advice in terms of the implications and long term effects of bankruptcy you will have to open a new question.
In terms of drug use then this implies they are also all equally liable although this could of course be argued at the time if this became an issue. If there are breaches then the agreement can be terminated. The greater the number of tenants then the greater the exposure to any default of the Tenancy agreement.
The term lodger implies someone longer term than a casual sleepover or guest and also implies some form of payment.
Each tenant of course needs to obtain separate/individual contents insurance and under the agreement a group insurance policy for damage.
Thank you, ***** ***** me know if you need further assistance or clarification.
