 An early conversation between landlord and tenant can help both parties to agree a plan if tenants are struggling to pay their rent—this can include reaching a temporary agreement not to seek possession action for a period of time and instead accept a lower level of rent, or agree a plan to pay off arrears at a later date.

 Deposits:

No change to how the scheme operates and rules apply.
