Legal Action and Eviction
Paying the rent must be a priority for your budget. If rent arrears build up and you break arrangements to repay them we will take legal action against you. This may lead to your eviction, but only as a last resort. We will do all we can to help you, and give you advice and information. You must keep in contact with us and tell us what you will do to repay the arrears
Our rent arrears and legal action leaflet contains further information.
Other Help and Advice
We can also refer you to our in-house Tenancy Sustainment Service or other local organisations who can provide advice and assistance, not just on benefits, but a whole range of money matters.
There are other agencies which provide free assistance to help you deal with your debts – you can search for these on the Scottish Government’s Financial Health Service website.
