By Direct Debit

Direct DebitDirect Debit is one of the safest ways of making payments and the the easiest way to pay your rent.

With a Direct Debit, you simply instruct your bank to make a monthly payment to us for the cost of your rent.

Once set up, this payment will be made automatically on the same date every month, so there's nothing else you need to do. It can be collected on the 1st, 8th, 15th or 22nd of each month. 

This makes life easy for you and there's no chance you'll forget to pay.

To set up a Direct Debit, print off this form, fill it out and return it to us.
