Rent Free Weeks

If you pay your rent weekly we work out how much you have to pay over 48 weeks. 

This means there are four weeks where you don’t have to pay as long as your rent account is clear. If you pay your rent by direct debit or standing order, we will work out 48 weeks rent and divide the amount over 52 weeks so that you make either 12 monthly payments or 26 fortnightly payments.

There are two rent free weeks at Christmas and two at the end of March. March 2022 dates are W/C 21st & 28th March 2022
