Rent payments are due in advance unless other arrangements have been agreed with us.
This section provides details on how rent can be paid, how we can help those who are having problems paying and what happens if rent is not paid on time.
We send rent statement to all residents four times a year. It shows all the transactions on your account for the previous three months. To see your rent statement at any time, sign up for My Account.
By direct debit
This is a quick and simple way to pay your rent, as well as being our preferred method of payment. It allows us to take payment directly from your bank account, giving you one less thing to worry about.
If you would like to set up payment by direct debit, ask your customer accounts advisor (if you live in Berkshire speak to your neighbourhood officer) for a direct debit mandate, fill it in and return it to us so we can process it. You can also call us on 020 8821 5184 to set up paperless direct debit.
You can instruct your bank to pay a set amount of money automatically weekly or monthly. Please contact your customer accounts advisor (or your neighbourhood officer if you live in Berkshire) for a form to set up a standing order, or download a standing order mandate [PDF.79KB].
