or her. In some cases, reasonable steps may include asking that person to leave your home or getting a court order against him or her. If you do not do this, we can take legal action against you.
Rent 17 Your rent and other charges, such as water charges, are shown at the beginning of your tenancy agreement. You must pay the rent and other charges on or before each Monday, unless you have our permission in writing to do otherwise. 18 Each joint tenant is responsible for all of the rent and any missed rent payments. 19 You could lose your home if you do not pay your rent and other charges. You must contact us if you have difficulty paying your rent. There are details of where to contact us on pages 28 of this booklet. 20 You must pay any debts or other charges relating to a previous tenancy if they are described in this agreement. 21 If you have to pay a debt from a previous tenancy under this agreement, we will not treat it as rent but you must allow us to recover those payments when you pay your rent.
Violence and abuse 22 You, or anyone staying in or visiting your home, must not assault, abuse or threaten any person in or visiting your home or the area around your home. 23 You, or anyone staying in or visiting your home, must not use or threaten domestic violence. This includes physical, sexual or psychological violence against or abuse of the tenant or any member of the tenant’s household. This behaviour may result in us taking action to evict you from your home. We can take this action even if you are not convicted. 24 You, or anyone staying in or visiting your home, must not assault, threaten or abuse any council staff or agents, or anyone working on our behalf.
