Looking for a home
Making lives better
If you are concerned about being able to pay your rent, please get in contact with us early so that we can help. Southern Housing Group supports the NHF pledge - the commitments include not evicting tenants suffering from Covid-19 related financial hardship and helping residents access benefits and other support.
If you are worried about your ability to pay your rent or have a change in circumstances then please contact our Customer Accounts Team for help and advice on 01403 220440
We’ve also provided some helpful website links below, about accessing benefits, which you might find useful. If you need help setting up a Universal Credit claim, take a look at “Universal Credit in Action”, which explains the Universal Credit’s online services.
A reminder, that to do our bit to reduce the burden on the Post Office during the Coronavirus pandemic, our quarterly rent statements are going paperless for a short while. This won’t affect how you pay your rent which you can continue to do in your usual way – it just means you won’t be receiving a paper rent statement from us through your letterbox this quarter.
Yes we can. If you would like to receive a copy of your quarterly rent statement by email then please contact the Customer Accounts Team on 01403 220440 and we will sort that out for you.
These websites also have lots of other videos that might be useful for people.
