Ways To Pay My Rent
Did you know that there are lots of different ways that you can pay your rent, resident charge and other charges that you are responsible for? It is easy to change your payment method if you are not happy with how you currently make payments - just speak to your Housing Management Officer. Your options include:
Payments can be made directly from your bank on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. Contact your Housing Officer for a direct debit mandate form. All tenants paying by Direct Debit are also entered into a quarterly prize draw. Plus Points: You can set up payments at a frequency and time that suits you. If the amount you need to pay changes, NCHA can automatically adjust your payments.
You can use swipe cards to make payments at PayPoint, the Post Office and e-Pay outlets. To find your nearest PayPoint or Post Office outlet please visit www.allpay.net/outlets
Plus Points: You can pay when and where it is convenient for you. You can pay by cash or cheque and there is no minimum payment amount.
