You’ll need to check the terms of your tenancy agreement because it may contain an Insolvency Clause.
This means if you take out a Debt Relief Order you would be in breach of your tenancy agreement and your landlord could start eviction proceedings even if you agree to pay off the arrears.
If you have rent arrears and are considering a Debt Relief Order it’s really important you speak with an experienced debt adviser first. If you can, make sure you have a copy of your tenancy agreement to hand.
If you’re in social housing, your housing officer or tenancy support officer can help you too. They’ll be able to find you free and confidential debt advice as well.
