You’ll be in ‘rent arrears’ if you fall behind with your rent payments to your private landlord or letting agent.
Although dealing with rent arrears can be tough, you should take action as quickly as possible. If you ignore your arrears, the problem will only get worse.
See if you can agree to a repayment plan to pay off your rent arrears.
A repayment plan means you'll make smaller payments to your landlord over a longer period of time. You’ll still have to pay everything back - but it could be easier than paying the full amount in one go. You can also use Resolve by flatfair to negotiate and agree on a solution to rent payment issues quickly and transparently - for free.
