South Lanarkshire Council are currently reviewing their Rent Management Policy.

The draft Rent Management Policy sets out the approach they will take when managing current and former tenant rent arrears. This approach aims to achieve the right balance between the tenant’s responsibility to pay rent while understanding the needs of the individual.

As part of this process, a consultative draft has been developed and publicised on the council’s website. The draft policy takes account of the views and priorities expressed by South Lanarkshire’s elected members and will be shared and discussed with a wide range of customers, partner organisations and other stakeholders throughout the consultation period.

South Lanarkshire Council would be grateful if you could find the time to review and provide comment on the draft policy. A response template has been attached, with the questions also highlighted throughout the draft policy document. The questions are not exhaustive so please also provide any additional feedback you may have. The consultation will remain open until 8 March 2020.…/rent_management_polic…
