My tenant is in arrears, what can I do?

Landlord and tenants have been asked, where possible, to agree on a plan where tenants are struggling to pay their rent.

Options available to tenants and landlords include:

  • A temporary agreement not to seek possession action;
  • A reduction in rent; and/or
  • An agreement to repay arrears at a later date.

Where both parties agree to repay arrears, either via a one of payment or the spreading of arrears over the life of the lease, a landlord and tenant must agree to a plan in writing. All parties must abide by this arrangement and tenants must contact their landlord immediately if they are unable to do so.
