Your council rent
The rent service monitors over 22,000 tenant rent accounts. The work of rent service officers includes commissioning advice and support for vulnerable residents and taking action to recover rent arrears by formal agreement or through legal action.
Rent service officers each have responsibility for a ‘patch’ of accounts which are grouped, as far as is practicable, via the various wards of the borough. Customer service officers within Contact Camden handle the more straightforward rent and arrears-related enquiries, especially those received by phone and email.
