Hi, we let out a 2 bed flat to a mother and daughter (now age 21) on a 6 month AST, they are now having difficulty in meeting the rent and starting to acrrue arrears as the mothers benefit has a dependent deduction of around £12 per week. The have asked to be given separate ASTs which would mean the shared rate but this would meet the rent. As they've only been there 6 months is this possible or will it be questioned? Also, is there any other implication of doing this i.e. with Council Tax etc?
