Rent advice surgeries

In order to support our Council tenants over the winter period, Rent Income Officers will be holding advice surgeries regularly to assist tenants with any concerns they may have about keeping their rent payments up-to-date, or advice if you have fallen into rent arrears.

Musselburgh Jobcentre Plus

A Rent Income Officer will be based in the Jobcentre Plus office in Musselburgh on a weekly basis to provide an advice surgery for anyone in need of help.  You can drop-in to speak to a Rent Income Officer, or if you prefer can contact us in advance and we can make an appointment for you.  You don’t need to have an appointment with a Jobcentre Plus Work Coach to attend the Rent Income surgery, anyone can come along.

Surgery times are shown below:

  • Wednesday afternoons, 2pm to 4pm on 21 December, 4 January, 18 January, 1 February, 15 February, 1 March, 15 March and 29 March
  • Wednesday mornings, 10am to 12pm on 14 December, 11 January, 25 January, 8 February, 22 February, 8 March and 22 March
