Struggling to pay your rent?
You must pay your rent on time to avoid being in arrears. This means that your unpaid rent will build up and over time you will find it more and more difficult to pay your rent on top of the rent you already owe.
Being in arrears can have serious consequences including being taken to court or even being evicted. You can get advice from Tenancy Management. Money advice is also available online.
