Terminate your tenancy

Former Tenant Arrears

It is important that you pay your rent and service charge if applicable up until the end of your tenancy. When you give us notice you are terminating your tenancy we will tell you then how much you owe. If you don’t pay the rent to the date of termination or you owe us money for repairs carried out at your property or legal costs we will write and inform you what you owe. If you fail to pay or make an agreement to pay the balance, you will receive a reminder letter. If you still do not pay or make an arrangement to pay, you will be referred to an outside debt recovery agency who will take steps on our behalf to collect the debt. You will incur additional costs if this happens. If at a later date you apply for a home with us or any other registered social landlord in South Lanarkshire this may affect your prospects of getting a tenancy.
