Paying your rent

We aim to make paying your rent as easy as possible.

It is a condition of your tenancy that your rent is due each week in advance. Your arrears should not build up between payments.  This means if you pay weekly then you should be one week in advance, if you pay four weekly you should be four weeks in advance and if you pay monthly then you should be one month in advance. This still applies if you are in receipt of Housing Benefit, Universal Credit or Discretionary Housing Payments. 

If you're struggling, please contact us to arrange a payment plan.

If you pay your rent monthly, it is due on the first of each month. If you would prefer to pay your rent at a different time of the month to fit with your pay day, please contact us to arrange it.

Remember: Your rent account should be in credit at all times. You can request a rent statement at any time.

Your rent goes towards the cost of managing, maintaining, repairing and improving your home.

If you’re not happy with the services you receive from us, you can make a complaint.

Every year we review the amount of rent we charge.  If we decide to increase or change your rent, we will give you four weeks' notice.

If you have an Assured Tenancy, you can appeal against a rent increase through your local Rent Assessment Committee. You must appeal before the start date of the proposed new rent, and you must let us know that you’re doing it. Please visit the Citizens Advice Bureau website for more information

If you have a Secure Tenancy you can appeal directly to the Valuation Office Agency. You must appeal within 28 days of receiving the increase notification. Please visit the Valuation Office Agency’s website for more information

To find out whether you have an 'assured' or a 'secure' tenancy, please read your Tenancy Agreement.
