Government have announced a £65million support fund to cover vulnerable renters’ arrears built during the pandemic. Welcoming the news, Isobel Thomson, safeagent Chief Executive, said:
“From the start of the pandemic safeagent has called for no additional debt for those tenants who are most in need. We are delighted that this support is not in the form of a strings attached loan scheme which we have said throughout would only cause additional stress for tenants.
“We hope that the application process for accessing this funding will be set out simply and clearly as soon as possible with fair distribution across Local Authorities.”
