I have just persuaded a young lady to leave her room in a shared house, fortunately without recourse to court. She owes £500 and I'm thinking of small claims process. However, I now discover she is only 17 and in fact was 16 when she signed the agreement. Does this have any relevance to my claim. What is the minimum age a person can sign a AST?
