How to pay your rent

Due to the high cost and delays associated with processing cheques, which now account for less than 1% of UK payment transactions, please make your payment by one of our other methods:

Online

By credit or debit card using the online payments form.

You will need:

  • Your account or reference number
  • Debit or credit Card

Direct debit

If you have a bank account this is a simple method, with direct debit you can choose from one of the four dates to pay your rent to come straight out of your bank account. You can download our direct debit form here.

Standing order

If you have a bank account, this is a simple method, with a standing order you can choose the date you pay your rent. You can download our standing order form here.
