Frequently Asked Questions
What will happen if I contact you about my rent arrears?
You will be offered a private appointment with your Tenancy Services Officer. If you are unable to come into the office we will offer a home visit at a mutually agreed time and date.
How can they help me?
Our staff are trained to deal with your problems confidentially.
What will happen if I ignore my arrears?
We will do everything within our power to help you stay in your home. If arrears continue to increase we may consider taking legal action against any tenant who continues to ignore their arrears, in some cases this may lead to eviction.
Please do not let this happen to you and speak to us.
What other action can you take to collect my arrears?
We will make every effort to help you deal with your rent arrears but we need you to work with us. If we cannot reach an agreement with you, or you break an arrangement to pay arrears, we may consider further action. For example, we may apply for the rent you owe to be deducted from your benefit, or even apply to the court to claim part of your wages.
Why is it important for us to collect rent?
A large part of your rent goes directly into repairing and maintaining your home. We also use part towards upgrading your and other tenants’ homes.
