Buying Christmas presents, sending cards, adding new decorations to the tree: There’s no doubt about it. Christmas is an expensive time for many renters.
But there’s a good reason to put paying the rent at the top of your Christmas to-do list.
Preventing rental arrears
Paying the rent over the Christmas period can sometimes be a problem for tenants. Unsurprisingly, some tenants feel that the holiday season shifts their priorities to presents, parties and family get-togethers.
Putting a plan in place to prevent rental arrears occurring will help to ease some of the financial stress associated with the Christmas and New Year period.
Here are a few easy suggestions to get yourself ahead this year:
- Where possible, pay an additional week’s rent early in December so you’re not caught out
- Adding a little extra rent top up each week in the lead up to Christmas
- It’s important to stay in touch with your landlord or property manager
- Good idea to maintain a positive relationship with the person managing your property
- It’s good to think about the importance of maintaining a positive tenant ledger
At the end of the day, enjoy your Christmas and New Year celebrations – you’ve earned it.
