Problems paying your rent
Every now and then we all have problems with money. It’s normal, but it can also be very worrying especially if we’re struggling to pay for essentials like food and rent.
If you’re having problems and can’t pay your rent on time (including if you're being financially affected by coronavirus of if you're moving onto Universal Credit) please contact us as soon as you can and let us know.

We can help in several ways:
- Together we can agree a manageable plan to help you through the difficult period and get you back into credit with your rent
- We can arrange a free session with the Citizens Advice where you can receive expert advice
- We can help you identify ways of saving money
