Pay your rent

If you live in one of our properties you can pay your rent using various methods.

Pay your rent online

You'll need your rent account reference number and paying online will take less than 5 minutes.

Telephone your Income Officer if you need to get your rent account reference number - you will need this number before you can pay online. You can contact them on 01623 450000 (option 1 followed by option 2). Remember when you pay online to make a record of the transaction reference number.
