Rent arrears: social housing

Here's what you can do to avoid getting into debt, if you fall behind with your rent payments.

Make an agreement

If you do have arrears, we will not expect you to pay them off in one go. It is usually possible for you to make an agreement to pay at an affordable rate.

If you have any questions or if you need any advice on the best payment option for you, please contact your local income service team on 0800 358 3783.
