Paying your rent
It is a condition of your Tenancy Agreement with us that you pay your rent regularly and on time. Rent is due each Monday, but you can pay monthly if you pay in advance or set up a direct debit.
In order to make paying your rent and service charges both safe and easy, we offer a wide range of options which means you can choose how to pay. You can use any combination of the options described below.
You will be given a plastic rent card containing your unique identification number. The card has no value and can only be used to pay your rent, but it can be used at any Post Office or at any location that offers Paypoint. These are mainly smaller retail outlets that have longer opening hours.
Other options include:
- By direct debit on any date and any frequency via AllPay
- By calling us on 01223 315036 with your debit card details
- On-line with your rent payment card and debit card at www.allpayments.net
Remember, it is your responsibility to make sure that your rent is paid regularly and is up to date.
If you are claiming Housing Benefit which pays for your rent, it is your responsibility to ensure that your claim is set up and your council has all the information they require to administer your claim. Housing Benefit is intended to pay all or part of your rent and you must ensure that the claim is in place and let us and the council know of any changes which may affect the payments.
Paying your rent by direct debit is one of the most convenient and cheapest ways to pay rent. We now offer any date any frequency direct debits via allpay which means you can pay weekly, fortnightly, 4 weekly, or monthly. This means that you will only make a fixed number of payments each year, and will cut out all the time spent queuing to pay your rent. There is also the Direct Debit Guarantee which is operated by all banks and building societies that take part in the scheme. This means that if an error is made you are guaranteed a full and immediate refund from your bank or building society.
