We’d much rather help you fix the problem than evict you for arrears, however if you don’t pay your rent, you could lose your home.
Depending on your situation, we can arrange a payment plan, help you access benefits you might be entitled to, arrange for you to attend training to improve your employment prospects and sign post you to organisations that will give you free and impartial advice and help.

Struggling to pay your mortgage or shared ownership rent?
If you are a home owner and you are struggling to make your mortgage or rent payments, we may be able to help you with flexible tenure. This means we can agree to buy back some of the share you own in your home. This will change the amount of rent that you will pay as you own less of your home.
Are you eligible for Flexible Tenure?
Before we will consider you for Flexible Tenure, you will need to show us that you have considered all other solutions including loan rescheduling and other payment solutions. You must also pay off any rent or service charge arrears you have.
The money you receive for the sale of your share will be minus the cost of our surveyor and our legal and valuation fee. You will also have costs such as the cost of your solicitor. We cannot always guarantee you will be eligible for Flexible Tenure even though you may meet the criteria.
Why you need to pay
There’s a slightly different arrangement in place depending on whether you rent or own your home, but one thing is common: it’s important that you pay your rent and service charge on time.
Rent and service charges are priority debts. They should be paid first along with a mortgage (if you are a home owner) and council tax. Non-payment can result in you losing your home or facing a criminal conviction.
Keep an eye on it
Make sure you pay on time. Check your account regularly – it’s easy to do this online if you’re registered for online customer services. Not registered but want to? Send us an enquiry and we’ll get this set up for you.
