Worried about rent arrears?

Early Doors

Early Doors is a free service that could help.


There may be many reasons why tenants are having difficulties in paying their rent.


They may not know who to turn to for help or may decide it is easier to try and ignore the problem.


The Early Doors service enables landlords to ask for help on the tenant’s behalf, at an early stage and before the situation becomes more critical.

An Early Doors support worker will work impartially with both landlord and tenant, to try to resolve any issues that may be causing the rent arrears, and hopefully reach an agreeable solution to repay the arrears and avoid an eviction.

The tenant just needs to give permission for the landlord to contact the service on their behalf, should the need arise.

This can be done at any time by completing the Early Doors Consent Form. Alternatively, include consent as part of the Tenancy Agreement or Occupation Contract at the start of the tenancy.
