Support for energy bills and the cost of living

The government has announced it is extending support on energy bills for another 3 months in the Spring Budget 2023.

Typical household energy bills had been due to rise to £3,000 a year from April, but now they will be kept at £2,500 until the end of June. 

Factsheets on the support available can be found on the goverment website by clicking here.

What if I am having problems paying my rent?

If you are experiencing difficulties paying your rent, contact us immediately and we will: 

  • Make an agreement with you to help you pay off your arrears at a manageable rate.
  • Help you to get advice on debt counselling or money management.
  • We can advise you on applying for housing benefit or universal credit.

You may have other debts to pay but payment of rent should be your first priority. 

What will happen if I don’t pay my rent?

We will: 

  • Contact you to tell you that you are in arrears and what actions will take place.
  • Monitor your account to ensure regular payments are received in future.
  • Try to work with you to clear your debt. However, if your rent remains unpaid, and the debt does not reduce, we will commence legal action.

If your rent remains unpaid you could be at risk of losing your home.
