Rents

•       Tenants of Rented Council Dwellings pay Rent which is calculated based on the Housing Differential Rent Scheme.

•       Housing Differential Rent Scheme means that the Rent payable is based on the ability of the tenant to pay – so if Income is low, Rent will be low; and if Income increases so will the Rent.

•       The Income of any other members of the household will be added to the Rent calculation and there may be deductions for any children in the family.

•       Failure to keep Rent payments up-to-date may result in Legal Action and ultimately, eviction from the dwelling.

•       Rent may be paid by any of the following methods:-

- by Standing Order

- by Household Budget

- by Billpay Card

- at the Cash Desk of Leitrim County Council Headquarters.
