Having Difficulty Paying Your Rent?
We are aware that people can at times experience difficulties that result in problems making rent payments, and we are here to help. If you are finding it difficult to pay or have fallen into arrears, the most important thing to do is contact your Housing Officer.
There are many reasons why you should avoid falling behind with your rent:
- You may not be allowed to transfer to another Association property
- You may not be allowed to exchange houses with another tenant
- You will not receive a satisfactory reference from the Association if you want to move to another tenancy with a different landlord, or take out a mortgage or loan on a property
- You may lose your home
