Rent and charges

How to pay your rent and other charges

Your rent is due each month in advance. It is due on the first day of each month. You can use any of the following methods to pay your rent or other charges:

Direct Debit or Standing Order

Direct Debit

A Direct Debit is an instruction from you to your bank or building society. It authorises the organisation you want to pay to collect varying amounts from your account – but only if you've been given advance notice of the amounts and dates of collection.

Standing Order

A standing order is an instruction you give to your bank to pay a set amount at regular intervals to another person or organisation’s account. The difference between this and a Direct Debit is that only you control the amount that comes out of your account.

To set up a direct debit or standing order please download and complete the appropriate form below, and return to us. We can also post you a form on request.
