Paying your rent

What should I do if I am waiting for my Housing Benefit or Universal Credit to be paid?

If you are in arrears because you are waiting for your Housing Benefit or Universal Credit to be paid you must let us know.

It is your responsibility to ensure any top-up payments are made on time and that you do not fall into arrears with your rent. You can use our benefit calculator (opens new window) to work out how much Housing Benefit you are likely to be entitled to.

If you get Universal Credit, you will be told how much you should pay towards your rent and will need to make sure your weekly charges are covered, as stated in your tenancy agreement.
