New scheme to give people in problem debt breathing space launched

Breathing space Initiative comes into force on the 4th May 2021 and will give those eligible a 60 day respite against any chasing of rent arrears.  There are specific circumstances and chains of events that are required in order to officially start a Breathing Space so not all requests will be legitimate.


Breathing Space can also be initiated where mental health issues are at play as well as debt issues so this is something you will need to be aware of.


During the Breathing Space, no legal action, chasing of debt, home visits, service of notices can occur – but there are instances where it can.
