Council housing rents

Planned maintenance to payments system

We're making essential updates from 10pm on Friday 2 December until 10pm Sunday 4 December. Unfortunately, we may be unable to take payments, via parts of our website or by telephone, during this time

We charge rent weekly. If you have an introductory or secure tenancy you will pay rent over 52 weeks.

You can pay your council house rent invoice online.

Get rent ready

You need to pay your rent in advance before you can sign your tenancy agreement for a new council home. This applies to new tenants and existing tenants who want to move home.

If you are bidding for properties, 'get rent ready' or your property offer could be withdrawn - see the Get Rent Ready factsheet, which explains what you need to do.
