Notice regarding payment emails

Please note that we are currently experiencing problems with email notifications for nominating a third party to pay. The fault is causing some reminders and expiry emails to be sent in error.

If you have received a confirmation that your payment was successful then your application will be submitted to the local authority and you can ignore these email reminders.

We are currently working on fixing this as a matter of urgency and apologise for the inconvenience caused.
