Surely I am not the only landlord worried about new EPC requirements?9:44 AM, 17th February 2021

I tried to help a friend out earlier in the year and took out a sole tenancy AST and she was named as a permitted occupier. The friendship quickly soured and I have been trying to get myself out of the situation.
I asked her to vacate the property, but rather than discuss it she went to a solicitor.
During her time there she has paid rent directly to the lettings agent and also to myself. Her solicitor has said that due to having exclusive possession and having paid rent she has created a sub-tenancy which from all my research I tend to agree with.
I am trying to establish two things:
Firstly how do I determine who she has created a tenancy with,
Secondly what type of tenancy has she created.
Anyone got any pointers??
