Your rent is due every month and should be paid in advance.
We use the money we collect to provide services such as repairs and improvements to your home.
Ways to pay
We offer different ways to pay your rent as well as help and advice if you're having difficulty paying.
You can pay by credit or debit card over the phone. Make sure you have your allpay reference number to hand.
Call allpay on 0330 041 6497
Pay over the internet using either a debit or credit card on the allpay website. Make sure you have a note of your allpay reference number. Remember to quote your name and reference number with each payment.
Paying by Direct Debit is worry free and ensures your rent is paid each month. Payment is taken directly from your bank account. This is now a completely paperless process and can be set up over the phone using your account number and sort code.
- At our office: We can take cash payments as we know some people do not have bank accounts and manage their house using cash.
- At a PayPoint: You can use your plastic payment card to pay your rent at any shop or outlet where you see the PayPoint logo.
- At the Post Office: You can use your plastic payment card to pay your rent at any Post Office.
Help to pay
Paying your rent is not a matter of choice and it’s important you pay on time. If you find yourself falling behind with your rent, it’s important you work with us to deal with the situation.
The earlier you let us know about a problem, the easier it will be for us to help.
If you don’t let us know about missed payments or don’t keep to an arrangement for paying off rent arrears, we may take legal action, which could lead to you losing your home.
If you are in arrears, don't:
- ignore the problem
- ignore our letters or telephone calls
- borrow money from door-to-door or payday lenders
