Your rent is important. Without it, we could not provide an
effective housing service. Your rent pays for most of the services
you receive from Rochdale Boroughwide Housing. For example,
it pays for the staff who help and support tenants, for repairs to
your home and improvements to your estate.
You are responsible for the payment of your rent and water
charges which are payable on a weekly basis unless you pay in
advance by Direct Debit.
Water charges, which are included in your weekly rent, are not
covered by Housing Benefit so these charges will always be payable
regardless of your income.
Your rent is due weekly. The rent week starts
on a Monday and finishes at 4.45pm on Friday. If you owe us any
money at the end of the week, we class it as arrears. If you pay
your rent fortnightly or monthly you need to pay in advance.
It is our aim to make it as simple as possible for you to pay
your rent by providing as many payment methods as
If you are having difficulty paying your rent you should contact
us straight away.
