Pay your rent or risk losing home

THE Housing Executive is urging tenants in the Coleraine borough to make sure they pay their rent regularly or they may risk losing their home.

North Eeast Accounts Unit Manager Elizabeth Martin explained: “Housing Executive tenants, who are having difficulty paying their rent, shouldn’t ignore the problem.

“We are committed to providing every opportunity to help tenants who are experiencing difficulties with paying their rent.

“Members of staff in our Accounts Unit in Ballymena provide confidential help and advice to any tenant who is having difficulty paying their rent. But it is important that they contact us at the earliest possible stage so that an affordable agreement can be made to repay the arrears. The earlier we are contacted the easier it is to tackle the problems.

“We are fully committed to helping tenants organise their finances so they can pay their rent and meet other expenses too. “

“We would urge anyone with any concerns about their finances to contact our Accounts staff immediately on 03448 920 900 for confidential advice.”
