Paying your rent

How to pay for your rent and services and what to do if you're having difficulties paying.

It’s important that you pay your rent and any service charges on time and there are lots of different ways you can do this.

Alternatively, you can make payments:

  • Online via allpay
  • By Direct Debit
  • By phone - call us on 0300 123 9966 - please note that we've introduced a new, more secure payment method for when you make payments over the phone: rather than giving us your card number verbally, we'll now ask you to enter your card details on your phone keypad.
  • Over the counter at the Post Office (find your local branch online).

As part of our continued transformation, we'll be introducing text messages which we'll send out to remind our customers that their charges are due. This is part of our commitment to provide a variety of ways to contact you. To make sure you receive these, please go to MyOneHousing portal to update your contact details. If you call us to make a payment, you'll be able to go through to our automated payment line where you can pay securely. Alternatively, you can also make a payment online.

Please remember that if you don’t pay your rent, your tenancy will be at risk.

If you're finding it a struggle to pay, please call us on 0300 123 9966 or email us as soon as you can so we can work with you to find a solution. We can also signpost you to other experts and sources of advice. There are also lots of useful online resources. The Money Advice Service, set up by the government, is a great place to start, with lots of free and impartial money advice. We also have useful information on how to manage your money more effectively.

Your rent will generally be reviewed annually or at the point of your tenancy renewal. We'll contact you in advance of any proposed renewal or rent increase and discuss the terms with you at that time.
