Problems paying your rent

If your home's too big for you

If you can’t afford your rent because your home's too big for you, you may wish to move to a smaller property as:

  • you’ll be paying lower rent
  • you’ll be paying lower bills, such as Council Tax, gas and electricity
  • a smaller home will be more manageable and need less housework

If you want to move to a smaller property in Southwark but can’t afford the cost of moving, our Smart Move scheme can help you with those costs. Find out more about Smart Move.
