Rent arrears

As a Council tenant you have a responsibility to ensure your rent is paid on a weekly basis and on time.

If you fail to pay your rent on time:

  • we will deal swiftly to recover arrears and take firm action against non-payers in line with our recovery procedures
  • this could put your tenancy at risk
  • we will be sensitive to individual's circumstances and offer advice on welfare benefit entitlement and money management wherever possible

If you are having difficulty making your rent payments you should speak to a Revenues Enforcement Officer as early as possible who will be able to offer you advice and support.
