Tenants paying rent on their credit cards

The Liberal Democrats have found more than 3,300 tenants in England are paying their rent using credit cards each month, paying just 40 councils. A Lib-Dem spokesperson said he was concerned that few councils have policies in place to help those who are struggling with rent because they are ‘routinely paying rent with a credit card’. LPW recently found that more than one million people used a credit card to help meet housing need.
