Make a payment
There are six ways that you can pay your rent.
1. Online - You will need to have a reference number to do this.
2. Direct Housing Benefit payments - Housing Benefit is money you may get from your local council to help you pay your rent. It can be paid straight to us as your landlord.
If you do not receive full Housing Benefit you will still have to pay all or some of your rent by one of the other payment methods.
3. Direct Debit – This is the easiest way to pay your rent. Payments can be made straight from your building society or bank account.
We can only take an agreed amount from your account and we will tell you first if we need to change the amount.
4. Swipe Card – When you become a tenant, you will be given a swipe card that enables you to pay your rent or charges in person by cash or cheque at any Post Office or Pay Point outlet. Make sure that you request a receipt and that you keep it as proof of payment.
NOTE - With effect from 1 January 2017, payments by swipe card can no longer be made at Payzone outlets.
To check where your nearest Pay Point outlet located log into the following website and enter your post code
5. By telephone – You can pay using your debit card over the phone by calling 03333 202671. You will need to tell us how much you want to pay, your tenancy reference number and your debit card details.
We can only take payments from the debit card holder and not anybody else.
6. Credit Card –Payments can also be made by credit card but you will be charged for this.
For more information about how to use any of these payment methods please contact your Supported Housing Officer.
