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:

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

Dates include: 2nd, 8th, 15th, 22nd or 28th of the calendar month  

If you pay by this method you are covered by the direct debit guarantee.
