It’s important to keep your rent payments in advance otherwise your landlord or agent is entitled to send you a notice to vacate.
If you are struggling to make ends meet, you have a few options:
- Talk to your landlord or agent and let them know what the situation, negotiate a repayment plan
- Visit your local community agency for some advice, they may be able to help pay your rent arrears if you meet the requirements
- If you receive government assistance, use Centrepay to schedule your rent payments
- Try and find a more affordable property and put in a notice to vacate.
