Rent-a room to shorthold tenancy (apply pro-rata)?

Has anyone come across a situation where the owner moves out mid-tax year?

Didn't find your answer?

I have a situation where an owner is renting out a room and then moves out (abroad with work) 5 months into the tax year. A person (we'll call person 3) then moves in, so lodger and person 3 sign a shorthold tenancy. The income for the first 5 months was more than £625 per month (i.e. over the annual £7,500 allowance), but less than £7,500 in total, does the rent-a-room allowance need to be pro-rata'd?
