How Your Rent is Calculated
- If you pay your rent weekly, the annual total of your rent is divided into 50 equal weekly payments.
- If you pay your rent monthly by Direct Debit, the annual total of your rent is divided into 12 monthly payments.
- When setting up your direct debit, unless you make alternative arrangements with your Income Officer any outstanding arrears will be divided over the year and added to your overall monthly payments.
- Regardless of the payment method used, tenants are entitled to a 2-week rent-free period, generally before Christmas. However, during this period, tenants are expected to continue to pay off any arrears as agreed with their Income Officer.
