Council housing - rents and payments

Your Tenancy Agreement states that ‘the rent is due weekly in advance on Monday of each week to the Council’; this means you must:

  • pay in advance from the date the tenancy started until the day you return the keys and move out (including any payments via Housing Benefit)
  • give four weeks’ notice with the notice period ending on a Sunday if you want to give up your tenancy and move out
  • make sure your rent is up-to-date when you move out

If your rent account is in credit, you can ask for a refund.

Note: Rents and service charges are increased annually each April. The Council will write to you in advance to inform you of these changes.
