How to pay your rent

Your rent not only pays for your house, but also pays for the services we provide for you. 

Everyone is different so we offer a range of flexible options for you to pay.

It’s also important you tell us about any changes to the people living in your house, as it may affect your payments.

Paying your rent further info

Unlike private landlords, we don’t ask you to pay a bond but you’ll pay at least one weeks’ rent in advance to give you a safety net just in case your circumstances change. 

It’s your responsibility to pay your rent but we also offer support if you’re struggling to pay, including budget planning and independent financial advice. Further help may also be available to you via Housing Benefit or Universal Credit, though please note that from 2018, the amount you may get through your benefits could be less than the rent for some of our homes.
