Rent Supplement and paying rent in cash


New Member
Is there a way a household could avail of Rent Supplement even though they have been paying their landlord cash for the months they have been living there? is there way to prove they have been paying through cash?
thank you for your response.

my family are struggling to pay rent - we have continued to pay it through cash because we have an agreement with the landlord but now that is becoming unmanageable. we would need something like a rent supplement but not sure if we would be eligible as we do not have the appropriate paper work as we pay with cash always. we may become homeless. is there a form i could fill in to show i have been paying rent just through cash?
Perhaps it would be best if you speak to an organisation like Threshold who offer free advice to those in situations such as yourself.
