How to pay your rent

Direct Debit

Why pay by Direct Debit? -

  • A choice of payment dates, either the 1st or 16th of each month. Or sign up to a weekly direct debit which is collected on a Friday. If there is a bank holiday on a Friday the payment will be taken on the next banking day. You will be notified as to when and what money is being taken
  • No more queuing or paying for postage
  • No need to remember to pay your rent - payments always made on time
  • Not having to complete bank forms every year and advance notice if the date or amount changes
  • An immediate money back guarantee from your bank in the event of an error
  • Each direct debit payer saves Tamworth Borough Council £20.00 per year in collection costs. These savings can be used to improve your services.
