Am currently owing my landlord £ 1030.00 pounds in rent

Customer Question

Am currently owing my landlord £ 1030.00 pounds in rent arrears. The landlord has asked me to put in writing how much I can afford to repay him on a monthly basis plus my rent of 560 pounds, which will not affect me financially. I responded with a fee of £30 pounds. having paid four monthly payments, the landlord now informs me that the fee is not enough and would require £700 pounds monthly payments. Which is more than 75% of my wages as I work in health care with a health condition. He is trying to scare me with section 8 to 10 of the housing act and court proceedings. I have agreed to pay the full rent plus 30 pounds arrears only. What are my options
