It is your responsibility to manage your rent payments, but we're here to give you advice.
This is the easiest way to pay if you have a bank or building society account and it’s simple to arrange. There are no extra charges and in the unlikely event of an error you are guaranteed a refund from your bank or building society.
Please call our Income Team on 0300 123 1745 to set up a Direct Debit over the phone.
Debit or credit card
You can make payments over the phone using your debit or credit card by calling our payment service provider Allpay on 0330 041 6497. To make the payment you will need to have your 19 digit Allpay PRN number, which can be found on the front of your Allpay card, and your debit or credit card details.
If you need further assistance, you can ring us on 0300 123 1745, selecting option 2 for the Income Team.
We can also help you set up a direct debit over the phone. You can choose to make your regular payment on a day that suits you.
Log onto our online bill payments platform, Allpay, and enter your Allpay card and debit or credit card numbers.
The Allpay app
You can now download an Allpay app to make payments online from the Apple App Store and Google Play:
Once you have logged into the app you can save all your payment reference numbers, bank card details and payment amounts so you don’t have to enter them every time you want to make a payment.
Visiting the Post Office or a PayPoint
Take your payment along to any Post Office or PayPoint outlet with your rent payment card and they will give you a receipt.
