How to Get Help When Struggling to Pay Rent
We understand that sometimes the unexpected can happen and that you may experience financial problems which make it difficult to pay your rent.
It is extremely important that if this does happen you contact us immediately so that our experienced staff can help you.
We can discuss a suitable repayment arrangement with you which will cover the rent due plus an amount towards any outstanding balance. If you keep to the arrangement, we won’t take any further action.
An appointment can be made with our Welfare Rights Officer. She can ensure you are receiving your full entitlement of benefits and provide advice on other debts etc.
If you continue to miss your rent payments we may consider the use of legal action to recover any rent owed and this could lead to you being evicted from your home. We never want to take this course of action and it is only considered as a last resort.
You can also seek legal advice and/or free and independant debt advice from organisations such as Citizens Advice.
