Remember to always put your rent account number on any rent payment you make. This will ensure your payment goes on your rent account. If you don't, we may not be able to put your payment on your rent account, which means your rent may remain unpaid. Avoid complications by ensuring you have put your rent account number as a reference on any rent payment you make.
The easiest way to pay is by Direct Debit. Please call the Revenues Team on 01527 587000.

For tenants not in rent arrears there are 4 non collection weeks as normal, however those who owe rent arrears must continue to pay in the non collection weeks.
The four non collection weeks for 2023/24 are:
- Week beginning 28th August 2023
- Week beginning 25th December 2023
- Week beginning 18th March 2024
- Week beginning 25th March 2024
If you pay by direct debit, then your monthly rent has already calculated these 4 non collection weeks in with your monthly amount, and you do not need to do anything.
