In the South West – where rents are amongst the highest in the UK – thousands of people struggle to pay their landlords every month. That’s why we offer quality, face-to-face advice to stop people falling behind with payments – and running the risk of eviction.
Debt Free South West provides free, independent and expert support on all kinds of money worries. Last year, around a quarter of those we helped had difficulties paying their rent.
Our trained and accredited advisors can talk to your landlord to explain your situation, assess your options and come up with a suitable payment plan. We’ll do everything we can to stop you being evicted, given bad references or losing your deposit. And we can work with you to check your benefits entitlement and reduce your household spending – so you won’t fall behind on rent in the future.
Get in touch with our advisers today by calling 0800 138 3422 or filling in our short assessment form.
