The rent you pay includes the cost of management, maintenance, major repairs and renewals and improvements. Most tenants also pay a service charge with their rent. Service charges are listed separately and cover communal items. Further information on service charges is available in the Tenants' Handbook. Rents and Service Charges are reviewed annually and tenants are given one months' notice of any changes.
Tenants may pay their rent by:

- Cheque in the post to Head Office payable to “Teachers’ Housing Association”
If you are on a low income you may be eligible for Housing Benefit. If in doubt always apply. If you need help with your application or are having problems with the Housing Benefit department please contact your Senior Housing Officer. Please remember that even if your rent is paid directly to us by Housing Benefit, you are still responsible for ensuring that it is paid.
