You must pay rent every Monday for the following week. You can pay every two weeks or every month if you prefer, as long as payments are made in advance. There are different ways you can pay.
We are always striving to make it easier and more convenient for our customers to make payments for their rent. We have introduced several different methods of payment so tenants can pay their rent 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
When you start your tanancy with us, we will order you a swipecard. You can pay in cash or by cheque across the counter, with the swipecard. Swipecards give you the freedom to pay your rent at any outlet displaying a Pay Point or Post Office sign
Simply take your swipecard to the counter together with your payment – and that’s it your rent is paid! Please get a receipt as proof of payment and keep in a safe place.
If you have access to the internet, you can pay your rent by loging on to www.allpayments.net You will need to have the following information:
We understand that sometimes it is difficult to get to a payment outlet during the day. So it is now possible to pay your rent by telephone.
To make a phone payment, you will need a debit or credit card and your payment reference number e.g.Switch, Connect, Visa or MasterCard. Electron and American Express cannot be used.
You will receive a payment authorisation code after you have paid and we recommend you keep this.

If you get Housing Benefit from the council, we recommend that you arrange for the council to pay it direct to us. You should make arrangements to pay any part of the rent that is not covered by your Housing Benefit to us direct. You must remember that even if you have your Housing Benefit paid direct to us, you must always make sure that you have made a full claim for the benefit each year.
We can also arrange direct payment if you owe rent over 8 weeks.
If difficulties arise with paying your Housing Benefit, it is your responsibility to sort it out. We will try to help you with this if you contact us.
