Ways to pay

The easiest way for you to pay your rent and service charge is by Direct Debit. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with your housing officer or property management officer (PMO).

 Here's some more information about Direct Debits:

  • What's a Direct Debit?

    A Direct Debit is an automatic payment that will leave your bank or building society account the same day each month. It's often used where regular payments need to be made, such as for mobile phones, utility bills or insurance. When you set up a Direct Debit with us, it means that your rent comes out of your bank account automatically.

  • What's great about a Direct Debit?

    With a Direct Debit you don't have to transfer money every time your rent is due - it's paid automatically. There's also no need to make arrangements with your bank; your housing officer or PMO can update your payments (with advance notice and your consent), so you're always paying the correct rent.

    With Direct Debits, you're protected by the Direct Debit Guarantee. If there are any changes to your Direct Debit, we will let you know and we will refund any money collected in error.

  • How do I set up a Direct Debit?

    You'll need to have a bank account to be able to pay by Direct Debit.

    You can register to set up a Direct Debit online. Any information you enter will need to match our records, so if any of your details has changed recently, you'll need to make sure those are up to date first. Please note also that your registration for online Direct Debit payments is separate from your registration with My Notting Hill.

    If your housing officer or PMO has previously set up a Direct Debit on your behalf, you don’t need to create a new online account – but registering for the service means that you’ll be able to view your current payment schedule online.

    Your housing officer or PMO can also help you set up your Direct Debit over the phone.

  • My rent is paid by Housing Benefit, do I need to set up a Direct Debit?

    If Housing Benefit only covers some of your rent then you will need to pay the difference via Direct Debit. Most residents will also pay something extra to make sure that their account is kept in credit.

  • What do I do if I'm unable to pay by Direct Debit right now?

    If you're not able to pay by Direct Debit right now then your housing officer or PMO will set up an action plan with you to help you move onto Direct Debit payments.

    In the meantime, you can make a rent payment through one of the options below. Your housing officer or PMO can give you the necessary details.

    1. My Notting Hill (currently only available to permanent rented housing tenants and homeowners)
    2. Standing order
    3. Online banking
    4. Phone
    5. Payment card (tenants only)
    6. Cheque or money order.

Having trouble paying?

Your home is at risk if you do not pay your rent or service charge on time.

If you're experiencing difficulties paying your rent, or getting behind with your payments, please tell your housing officer or PMO right away.

If you have rent arrears (missed payments) and cannot pay them straight away, you may be able to make an arrangement to pay them over a period of time.
