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.
- 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.
