A lesson: never give back money to a tenant. Always use it towards something else that they owe you such as next month's rent.
Also, you'll probaby need to go to the housing tribunal and make a case of it. Then you probably need to take it to a small claims court. Or you could hire a lawyer but you'll pay him/her 30%.
If I were you id just take the loss and move on. I'd concentrate on the next tenant and not making the same mistake. It may sound like a terrible idea but think about how much time you'll waste on this. for how much time you'd waste and how much effort it will cause you, you might want to just write it as a loss, reduce your income, pay less income tax and move on to the next tenant.
Sounds harsh but that's what id do. This is a business, run it like one. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose. Take it, don't take it personal. (well, other than the fact that your ex-friend screwed you over)

Honestly, you're pretty lucky. I know you think you got screwed, and yeah it sucks, but it could've been way worse.
Yea i have one but for this didn't feel the need, young learning mistake. I thought about if she were to seek legal counsel. She would end up at a loss even if she won since she would have to pay there services.
Written notice of change of address would constitute a change to the contract thus extending it?
You have a nice little crop of rentals...Consider yourself lucky, be glad she's out, learn from your missteps and move on.
