Pay your rent and leaseholder charges

You can pay your housing rent online by using your rent number. Your rent number can be found on your rent card and is eight digits long and starts with one.

You can also pay by the following methods:

Direct Debit

We currently offer the 1st, 9th, 17th or 24th of the month payment dates. If we need to amend your payments, for example due to an increase, we will give you 14 days notice in writing and we will ask the bank to increase the amount you pay.


Income Management Team:


Using the barcode on your rent card you can make payment at any outlet displaying the PayPoint sign. No charge is made. A list of outlets in the area can be found using the locator tool on the PayPoint website.

Post Office

Using your barcode you can make payment to any Post Office in the country. Payment can be made by cash, cheque or debit card. Please make cheques payable to 'Post Office Ltd' and write your account number on the back of the cheque.
