If you are a tenant financially affected by the Coronavirus outbreak the best advice we can give
is to communicate with us at the earliest opportunity. This is in order that we may be able to
help with advice but also so we may alert your Landlord that there may be an issue with the rent
due so they can make alterations to their outgoings.
You may have heard about the "rent holiday" during the current situation. We would like to take
this opportunity to explain what this means. We have not seen the legislation with the details
but we know the direction of travel. The government recognise that some people who are ill,
self-isolating or even lose their jobs as a result of the current problems may not be able to
pay rent. Obviously anyone who loses their job is encouraged to claim benefits at the earliest
opportunity as rent will remain due. Therefore as rent remains due rent should be paid if at all
possible. As it remains due, even if you cannot afford all the rent because of reduced income,
please ensure you pay what you can as it will reduce the amount of rent you have to catch up on
when this rule is lifted in three months' time. The proposal does not take away the
responsibility for the rent, it simply gives a little more time to pay.
With that in mind we again stress the importance of communicating with
us - we are here to help, not judge!
