We use the rent and service charges we receive to provide services and carry out improvements to your home and estate. That's why it’s important you keep your payments up to date.
Please don’t forget, your rent needs to be paid in advance. This means you should be paying your rent at the start of each week you’re in your home, not the end.
If you pay fortnightly or monthly, you should be paying at the start of these periods.
Not paying in advance yet, or struggling to pay your rent? Please contact us
as soon as possible. We can set up a plan to get you paying your rent in advance and give you advice if you’re worried about your rent.
There is also lots of advice about managing your money and dealing with debt on our advice and support pages

*You will need a rent payment card for these methods of payment. If you don't have one, you can request one from your local housing team or contact us.
Please note that it may take up to two working days for payments to show on your rent account.
If you receive benefits or are on a low income, you may be entitled to help with your rent. For more information, contact the Housing Benefit team at your local council.
