Who pays the rent if we separate before divorce?

Who is responsible for paying the rent when you separate from your spouse is not clear cut and depends on several factors, such as whether you rent from a private landlord or local authority. You will also need to consider who is named on the tenancy agreement, if the term is fixed or has ended, and you are now on a rolling contract. All these things, and more, can affect who pays for the rent when you separate before divorce.
