Rent Arrears

If you are struggling to pay your rent, please don’t just ignore it and hope that the problem will go away. Instead, contact your landlord as soon as possible to discuss your situation – early intervention is the key to avoiding arrears and there is lots of support and advice available from organisations such as Citizens Advice & Rights Fife and the Money Advice Service.

If you are finding it difficult to pay your rent, you may also find the Welfare and benefits and Too many rooms sections of this website useful.

Please see our FAQs section to find out how having rent arrears or other housing related debts could result in you housing application being suspended, and what you need to do to have your suspension lifted.
