Paying your rent matters - if you don't pay, you can't stay
You have responsibility for paying your rent, whether you pay the rent yourself or have payments made on your behalf via housing benefit.
Direct Debit - the easy way to pay your rent
Direct Debit takes the hassle out of paying your rent - you'll never have to wait and never pay late.
With Direct Debit, your rent payment automatically comes out of your bank or building society account. It's flexible too - you can choose from weekly or fortnightly payments, or monthly on the 1st, 12th, 19th or 26th of the month.
To start paying your rent by Direct Debit, contact the housing team using the details below.
