Pay my rent

Paying your rent and any charges should be your top priority. If you don’t pay, you risk losing your home. We offer a wide range of different payment options to make this as easy as possible for you, including paying online, over the phone and setting up Direct Debits.

If you need to talk to someone about your rent payments or if you are struggling to pay your rent please contact your Housing Officer.

Paying by Direct Debit

Paying by Direct Debit is the simplest way to pay your rent. It is easy to set up and payments can be taken weekly, fortnightly or monthly as you wish. 

Direct Debits are convenient and give you greater control over your money.  

Our Direct Debit payment scheme offers a payment guarantee. If there are any changes to the amount of your Direct Debit, we’ll let you know at least 10 working days in advance. 

Please contact your Housing Officer if you would like to set up a Direct Debit.

If you need to talk to someone about your rent payments or if you are struggling to pay your rent please contact your Housing Officer.


I don’t have a bank account, can I still set up a direct debit?

If you haven’t got a bank or building society account don’t worry, we can help and support you to set one up.

Direct Debit payments – weekends and bank holidays

Direct Debits due for payment on a bank holiday or weekend will fall on the next working day.

As we submit the payment file in advance it may, however, show as a pending transaction and affect your cleared funds over the bank holiday. 


I do not have enough money in my bank account for my Direct Debit. What should I do?

Contact us immediately so we can talk to you about paying your rent. If told in sufficient time, usually three working days, we may be able to suspend the Direct Debit and stop you having to pay bank charges. Email:
