We know some of our tenants will unfortunately experience a drop in income due to the current situation, and we want to try and provide as much information and advice as we can. We appreciate it’s a really worrying tme, and we want you to know there is help available if you find yourself unable to pay your rent.
Please click here for some information on how to get help.
This could be useful if you have to self-isolate, if your self-employment earnings reduce, or if you become ill.
If you’re affected by bedroom tax (if you have one or more spare bedrooms) there is help available for this too. You can apply for a Discretionary Housing Payment (DHP) for under-occuoancy from your local authority. Links to each can be found below:
If you would like any advice or assistance in relation to this, please contact one of CHA’s Financial Inclusion Team by using the contact details listed below.
