Paying rent

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to pay your rent.

This page gives you details about the range of ways that you can make a rent payment.

You can also:

Direct Debit

The easiest way to pay your rent is to set up a Direct Debit.

The main benefit of Direct Debit is that once it’s set up you don’t have to worry about your payments as your rent is automatically paid from your bank account. You can set up a Direct Debit by:

Standing order

You can complete a standing order form to take to your bank and your rent will be paid automatically to us. Your rent payments continue at the agreed amount until you change or you cancel them.

Allpay payment card

This is a plastic payment card you can use to pay your rent at any Post Office or Pay Point outlet. Simply take your card with your payment and pay over the counter.

You can request a new Allpay card online.

You can also get an Allpay card by contacting us.

Pay online

To pay rent online you need a debit or credit card and an Allpay payment card.

Payment by phone

You can pay your rent by phone using either a debit or credit card. There are two options for paying by phone:

  • call us direct on tel: 0300 111 1000
  • use Allpay’s 24 hour payment line on tel: 0844 557 8321 (you must have an Allpay payment card so you can quote the reference number).

Rent direct for housing benefit

If you claim housing benefit you can pay your rent by ‘rent direct’. This means that your rent is paid directly to us from your housing benefit so you don’t have to worry about making a payment yourself.

When you claim housing benefit, you simply ask for your rent to be paid directly to your landlord.

By post

You can pay your rent by post using a cheque or postal order. You need to include your name and address on the back of the cheque or postal order so we know which account to pay the cheque into. You can send your payment to:

Customer Accounts
Thirteen Group
2 Hudson Quay
Windward Way
Middlesbrough
