Pay your council rent
When you become a tenant, we tell you how much rent you have to pay in the letter offering you the tenancy.
We start a rent account for you and give you a swipe card. Each week we charge your rent to this account and every time you make a payment we show this on your account.
You can also pay monthly or fortnightly, but you must always pay in advance. What happens when you miss rent payments.
There is a 2 per cent charge if you pay by credit card.
Other ways to pay
- At any cash office or Service Point using your plastic swipe card, debit or credit card. We do not accept cheques.
- At any outlet (including Post Offices) displaying the Paypoint sign using your plastic swipe card, cash, cheque, debit or credit card. Some retailers may not accept cheques.
