Rent arrears and debt
If you are struggling to pay your rent or finding yourself in debt then you should contact us without delay. There is a lot of support and advice we can offer to help you pay your rent on time and to clear your rent arrears or debt and remain in your home.
Struggling with your rent
We collect rent from our tenants to pay for the homes and services we provide, so it is important that you pay it on time to avoid going into arrears.
If you start to fall into rent arrears then please contact us immediately so we can help. We will work with you to agree a way of clearing the debt within a reasonable time. The speed at which arrears are cleared depends on your ability to pay.
