Difficulty paying your rent

If you miss payments, you will owe us the money and go into arrears. If you find it difficult to pay your rent, contact our income team straight away. If you ignore your rent payments and don’t contact us for help, you could lose your home.

If you’re on a low income, you may be entitled to benefits. Make sure you’re receiving the benefits you’re entitled to. Contact your local council to find out more.
