The festive season is fast approaching and our minds are focused on the celebrations, the presents and the cheer but there are a few things you should remember if you don’t want to be left with a sore head on boxing day.

Pay your rent before it’s spent

Your rent and other bills should always be at the top of your priority list, especially at Christmas. The cost of Christmas can soon add up with the food, parties and presents, so it’s important that you plan, budget and remember your household bills; try not to spend more than you can afford.

Failure to pay your rent

If you fail to pay your rent, you risk losing your home so it should always be your priority.

If you are currently in rent arrears you can call Customer Care Line on 0300 123 3456 and ask to speak to your Income Officer who may be able to help you pay down your debt.
