Advice for tenants over rent

If you are a West Lancashire Borough Council tenant struggling to pay your rent because of the Coronavirus Pandemic please contact our Financial Inclusion Team who are here to support you.

West Lancashire Borough Council will offer up to a three month payment holiday for its tenants who are in financial difficulty as a result of the outbreak.

Our Financial Inclusion Team can help tenants with this and maximise their disposable income and give advice on how them can budget, make a claim and manage your bills.  Contact our team on 01695 585252 or by emailing

Councillor Jenny Wilkie, Portfolio holder for Housing and Landlord Services said "We are proud to provide social housing in our local communities and we do not want our tenants to be worried about how they are going to pay their rent. We would also ask any tenant who is struggling to get in touch as soon as they can so we can see what support we can put in place for them."
