Make a payment
We rely on the rent and service charge we receive from you to maintain our services and carry out improvements to your home and estate.
That’s why it’s important that you’re able to keep your rent and service charge payments up to date. It’s quick and easy to pay – you can set up a direct debit or standing order, pay online or over the phone, or use your allpay payment card at a Post Office or one of the many PayPoint locations.
Getting a better handle on your finances and finding out whether you’re getting all the financial help you’re entitled to will make it easier for you to keep up to date with your payments. For information, see our advice on managing your finances and check out our benefits calculator.
There are several ways you can pay your rent or service charge.The main methods are:
With direct debit we automatically collect payments from your bank account at regular intervals so you never need to worry about missing a payment. The word allpay will be shown on your bank statement against your payment.

All you need is your own valid email address, your allpay rent payment card and a debit or credit card.
Once on the allpay website, you will be asked to enter your payment card number, the long 19 digit code across the centre of the card. All first time users are asked to enter and confirm a password for added security and an email address at which the cardholder can receive payment confirmation.
The payment service accepts payments from debit or credit cards. Please remember that if you pay by credit card you may be charged interest which could make it more difficult for you to afford future payments. When you have completed the transaction, you will receive a confirmation email with a payment reference number.

Once registered, to make a payment, you simply text ‘Pay’ along with a registered text code (for example, ‘Rent’) and the amount you wish to pay (no pound sign), followed by the text password which is the last 4 digits of your debit/credit card. You will then receive a confirmation text message.
Download a smartphone app
Allpay.net have developed an app for Apple and Android smart phones, and are looking to release a version for Blackberry and Windows devices in the future. The app allows you to make an account, view your payment related information and make payments.
The app is free to download and can be used 24 hours a day, anywhere you have 3G or wifi connection. The app will even store your card details protected by a 4 digit pin so you don’t have to enter them each time you want to make a payment.

What are QR Codes?
QR codes or ‘Quick Response Codes’ work in a similar way to barcodes. Apps such as QR Reader for iPhone or QR Barcode Tracker for Android use the camera on your smart phone to ‘read’ the barcode and take you to a specific web page, store page or other piece of information. This saves having to remember a difficult web address. If you don’t have a QR Code reader app installed on your smartphone, or don’t want to download one, you can access the app stores using the iTunes and Google Play links above.
