Tenant guidance

Paying rent

Rent is usually due to be paid monthly or monthly in advance. Your tenancy agreement should state which day of the week/month your rent is due. If this is not written in your agreement, ask your landlord for written confirmation of your rent due date.

To make sure your rent is always paid on time, it is highly advisable that you set up a standing order from your bank account directly to the landlord or managing agent of the property. You should include a clear reference on the payment, such as "[property address] rent".

It is not recommended to pay rent in cash. However, if you do, make sure to get a clearly written receipt for the payment and keep this somewhere safe.

If you don't pay your rent or continue to not pay your rent on time, your landlord can take steps to evict you from the property and pursue you for any unpaid rent.
