What does rent first mean?
Rent is one of the most important household bills to pay. Keeping your home is vital for the safety and security of you and your family.
THCH requires residents to pay rent first before other debts and household expenses.
To enable residents to pay rent on time, and in accordance with the tenancy agreement, THCH provides a range of payment methods. To further assist residents who need support with Benefits, we also provide access to a Tenancy Support Officer and referrals to 3rd party support agencies in Tower Hamlets.
Rent first requires residents to pay weekly in advance. If you opt to pay fortnightly or monthly, a credit is required for any weeks in between. THCH Income Recovery Team can assist with setting up a payment plan to facilitate this which will avoid you receiving letters about arrears on your account.
Rent first is the most important household bill to pay. Remember without a roof over your head none of the other bills matter.
