My friend is moving house. The T line in the new house has been given an extra week to run by the people moving out so instead of becoming available when my friend moves in she has to wait another week. Weird!
Will my friend's router work on the BT line in the new house anyway or does the line recognise the router?
Any help gratefully received.

If it's just a router, won't matter where it is, it will get it's settings from the modem.

If its a modem/router combination or just a modem, contact the service provider and see if it will need to be reconfigured.
