Rent Arrears

Struggling to pay your rent?

If you're struggling to pay your rent, please don't ignore it. Our Income Enforcement Team is here to help.

SLH will contact you quickly and frequently when you owe us money. When we write to you we will use a traffic light system to show you where your account is up to.

Green – this means that your account is in the early stages of arrears so if you clear your account or make an agreement to repay the debt, you will limit the arrears and increase the chances of keeping your home.

Amber – this means your arrears are increasing and the first stage of legal action will begin.

Red – you are at serious risk of losing your home because SLH is taking court action against you, you will be charged the cost of SLH applying to court.

We're here to help you manage your debt

Our Income Enforcement Team is there to remind you of your obligation to pay your weekly rent and to ensure no arrears accrue unnecessarily on your account due to non-payment. Where this happens, the team will be on hand to offer necessary support and advice to get your account back on track. However, if your rent payments are not maintained or you fail to engage with us, we will be forced to take further action against you, which can put your home at risk. You may also incur additional costs (e.g. court costs). 

The Income Enforcement Team can help you to maximize your income by ensuring that you are receiving the benefits you're entitled to. The team works alongside our in-house Benefits Advice Team, who can offer you more in-depth advice and help.

The team also work closely with our Affordable Living Team who can help you cut your utility bills and make your home more efficient.
