Your rent is charged weekly or monthly and is due in advance, as set out in your tenancy agreement. Please be aware that if you don’t keep up with your rent payments we may not be able to make improvements to your home and you could eventually lose your home if you build up rent debts.
If you’re having trouble paying your rent, please contact your income officer as soon as possible.
If you’re struggling to pay your rent, our Moneywise team may be able to help by offering support with claiming benefits and budgeting advice. For more information on the services our Moneywise team offer, please see Help with money and benefits. If you have had a recent change in circumstances that means you are now eligible to claim Universal Credit, please see Universal Credit for more information and how to claim.
