The Tenant Hardship Loan Application form

Apply now

The Scottish Government wishes to offer a loan to assist private and social sector tenants, where they are experiencing difficulties paying their rent because of COVID-19 restrictions. The aim of the loan is to protect tenants from eviction due to rent arrears, providing short term support that allows tenants to pay rent arrears that have arisen since 01 January 2020 and/or pay up to 3 months of future rent payments. The loan is intended to provide support where other forms of financial support are unavailable to the tenant. Where a tenant is eligible for other forms of support - for example Discretionary Housing Payment – then they would be expected to take these up rather than apply for this loan.
