What happens if your rent does not get paid?
If you fail to pay your rent, you could damage your
credit rating, not be allowed a transfer, be denied a reference and
eventually lose your home… and you will still owe the rent
It’s really important that you get in touch with
us as early as possible to discuss any problems and arrange a
repayment plan. If we have to resort to court applications, it
could be too late.
The process we will follow
We follow a firm but fair procedure for
failure to pay. A summary is shown here, but the full procedure is
available on request.
If you do not pay, or payments are short, we
will make several attempts to contact you. If you don’t respond or
stick to a payment plan, we will serve notice on you.
This is the start of legal action to remove you from your home.
If you still fail to respond or stick to a
payment agreement, we will apply to court to take possession of
your home. You may be given the chance to agree an arrangement to
pay off your debt. If not, or if you do not stick to the
you will be evicted.
