Problems paying?

We understand sometimes you may have difficulty paying your rent.

Your Housing Officer will be able to offer advice and signpost you to agencies who can help. It is important you contact them should you face a change in your circumstances.  If you do not pay your rent, action may be taken which could put you at risk of losing your home.
