Rent and service charges can be paid: online, by direct debit, by phone and in person. We also operate special service for the housebound and disabled.
Payment of council rent and leaseholder service charges can be made in the following ways:

Direct Debit is an easy and convenient way to pay from a bank or building society account and you can choose whether to pay on 1st or 16th of each month for rent, or the 1st, 16th and 27th of each month for leaseholder service charges.
You can inform your bank or building society should you wish to cancel payment at any time and the Direct Debit Guarantee allows an immediate refund to you if anything should go wrong.
