Council tenants have a lot of flexibility and choice when it comes to paying their rent.
Below we have listed the ways you can pay.
You can pay your rent online using your Credit or Debit card through our Online Payment Service. This service offers secure payments, in conjunction with HSBC Bank, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The simplest way to set up a direct debit is to complete the information online. To do this, click on the link below and let the income team do the rest:
Alternatively, you can print out the Direct Debit mandate and send it to us at:
Housing Income Team
Charnwood Borough Council
The following dates will be available to pay your rent by Direct Debit:
- Every two weeks
- Every four weeks
This means you won't have to remember to pay your rent.
We can provide you with the details to set up a standing order with your bank or building society. Unlike a direct debit, if your rent payments need to change you will have to change your payment with the bank. Call us on 01509 634666.
Plastic swipe card
You can pay your rent at any Post Office or Paypoint using your AllPay plastic swipe card. If you have lost your swipe card or require another one, please contact the Housing Income Team on 01509 634666.
Credit or Debit card
Opening hours for this service are:
- 8.30am to 5pm Monday through to Thursday
- 8.30am to 4.30pm on Fridays
You can make payments using your debit or credit card. Payments can be made by calling 01509 634666 and quoting your rent account details.
Alternatively you can call our automated payment line, 24 hours a day 7 days a week, on 01509 634555. Payments can also be made by debit card at Customer Services in the Charnwood Borough Council offices.
Register with Clockwise Credit Union
In partnership with Clockwise Credit Union we offer a Clockwise Rent account as an alternative method of paying your rent.
This is a stress free way to ensure that your rent is paid every week/month. For more information contact the Housing Income Team on 01509 634666 or visit the Clockwise Credit Union website.
You can post a cheque or postal order weekly, fortnightly, or monthly in advance. Please make your cheques payable to Charnwood Borough Council and write your rent account number and address on the reverse.
Please send your payment with a covering letter to:
- Housing Income Team, Landlord Services, Charnwood Borough Council, PO Box 8749, Council Offices, Loughborough, LE11 9EF.
Please do not send cash through the post as Charnwood Borough Council cannot be held liable for any loss. A receipt will be posted back to you the next day.
