We charge rent weekly. If you have an introductory or secure tenancy you will pay rent over 52 weeks.
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If you are bidding for properties, 'get rent ready' or your property offer could be withdrawn - see the Get Rent Ready factsheet, which explains what you need to do.
