Local advice charity, Housing Rights, has welcomed the launch of Department for Communities (DFC) proposals around the Private Rented Sector. The charity has been calling for better regulation of the sector for many years.
One in five local households now rent their home. Last year the charity helped people deal with over 2,500 issues related to renting privately.
Kate McCauley, Policy Manager with Housing Rights commented:
Local charity Housing Rights is urging people who are worried about paying their mortgage or rent following Christmas to contact them for free advice
Catherine Feely, Advice Services Manager with Housing Rights, commented:
“We know that many people in Northern Ireland are struggling with debt worries after Christmas and may be worried about paying their rent or mortgage. We want to let them know that free advice and assistance is available and the earlier they seek help the more options are available.”
