Reply To: Should we wait for 8 week’s worth of arrears to accrue?


Suspension under Reg 11 has been debated on these boards, but there is also a new Reg which may help – 96 (3B) which allows you to make payment to the landlord for 8 weeks whilst you consider a suspicion that the tenant may have difficulties in managing his financial affairs or be an improbable payer.

This can buy you time to do Safeguard investigations and interviews whilst maintaining the tenancy and continuing payment.
