Additional information on our updated rent arrears policies and procedures
In conjunction with our tenancy agreement and as part of our latest policies and procedures, rent is to be paid each rent fortnight (with the exception of those who specifically pay by direct debit or standing order).
Our latest arrears procedures will include sending out initial arrears letters at the point where even one rent fortnight has been missed.
Please be advised that when arrears reach a level of £50.00+ we will carry out a lock change and a further recharge of £53.21 will be issued and added to the outstanding debt.
If you are on the waiting list for Choose Your Home, any offers of a property will be delayed until outstanding debts on previous/current properties or garages are cleared in full.
