Paying Your Rent

Pay your rent

The easiest and most convenient way of paying rent is by direct debit, with payment being taken directly from your bank account.  You can choose any date on a monthly basis or every two or four weeks to pay. 

If you pay your rent by direct debit, £5 per year will be credited to your rent account. 

To set up a direct debit, download and return a Direct Debit form  or ring us on (01229) 876578; email housing@barrowbc.gov.uk or call in to see us at the Housing Department.
