Paying your rent in advance

We ask all our tenants to pay for their home in advance. It means you’re less likely to fall into rent debt, as it means you have a buffer should your circumstances change, like returning to work or moving home, or if you run into difficulty paying your rent in future. That’s why we think the best way to pay for your home is in advance and by Direct Debit – that way, it’s always taken care of.

We’d love to talk to you about the benefits of paying in advance and how we can help you get there, even if you have a rent debt on your account. If you’re interested to know more, please get in touch.

If you need help with your rent

We know life isn’t always straight forward, so if you are experiencing difficulties paying your rent, please let us know as soon as you can – we're here to help. In the meantime, head to our money management page for tips and advice on how to keep your money flowing.

Rent free weeks

Your tenancy agreement will say if you pay your rent over 48 weeks or 52 weeks. If you pay weekly over 48 weeks, then your ‘rent free weeks’ are:

18 December 2023
25 December 2023
25 March 2024

Please note, if you rent account is in arrears we will expect you to pay through the rent free weeks to catch up. If you pay monthly then we have already taken the rent free weeks into account in your monthly payment calculation so your monthly payment will not change.
