Mendip District Council has issued a press release saying that they urge tenants and landlords in financial hardship or at risk of homelessness to contact them, sooner rather than later. It reads:
“The council’s Housing Options Team has professional, knowledgeable officers on hand to provide support and assistance, whatever the circumstances. And they are ready to help those who are struggling due to the coronavirus emergency and its impact on the economy.
“Tenants and homeowners may be worried about how to pay the rent or mortgage. Some may fear they’ll lose accommodation that’s tied to their job. Others may be in an abusive relationship during lockdown, thinking they have nowhere to turn.
“Please contact the Housing Options Team on 0300 303 8588 for one-to-one advice.”
