The easiest way to pay your rent is by Direct Debit. The payment is debited automatically so you won't have to worry about forgetting to pay your rent. We arrange for your bank to pay the rent every month on the
4th, 18th or 25th of each month.
We will let you and your bank know if there is a change to the amount you have to pay.
If you cannot download and print the direct debit form, please phone Access Harrow on 020 8901 2630 to request a form.
To make a payment you will need your rent payment number. You will be able to find it on your rent statement or any rent letters sent to you from your housing officer.
To pay your rent by debit or credit card using the automated payment line call 020 8424 1220
Civic Centre payment kiosk
There is a payment kiosk in the main reception area of the Civic Centre.
You can pay your rent by cash, debit or credit card at the payment kiosk which is open Monday to Friday from 9.00am to 4.45pm. The doors close promptly at 5pm.
Standing order / Internet banking
If you would like to pay your rent by Standing Order, give the council’s bank details and your rent payment number to your bank. You must tell your bank the amount to pay and the frequency of payment, for example, weekly or monthly.
If you pay by standing order, you must remember to tell your bank if the amount of rent you have to pay goes up or down.

You must pay at least one week’s rent before your tenancy starts as your rent is due every Monday for the week to come. After that you must continue to pay your rent every Monday for the week to come.
If you do not move into your new home at the very start of your tenancy, you still have to pay your rent (and you may have to pay rent on two homes).
If you are on a low income, you might qualify for Housing Benefit or Universal Credit to help you pay your rent. You should make any claim as soon as possible after signing your tenancy agreement as you may lose out if you delay.
It is always your responsibility to make sure that your rent is paid in full and on time.
