Advice on rent for Council tenants

The Council welcomes the latest government guidance with regards to those struggling to pay rent as their ability to earn has been impacted by Coronavirus. We would stress that impacted customers should seek advice and assistance from our Financial Inclusion Team who are well placed to assist in maximising the disposable income for customers.

Councillor Jenny Wilkie, Portfolio holder for Housing and Landlord Services said "We are proud to provide social housing in our local communities and we fully support this decision as we do not want our tenants to be worried about the threat of eviction. We would also advise 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."
