Council housing - rent - A to Z

Service Outline

Rent is charged fortnightly and is payable in advance by the first Monday of each rent period. Any payment not made on time will be treated as arrears.

Paying your rent on time is an important part of your tenancy agreement. Make paying your rent a priority, you could lose your home if you don't.

We issue an annual rent charge letter to all Council tenants in March, showing details of your rent charge for the new financial year.
