Rent

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.

How to pay your rent
Rents and service charges are due and payable monthly in advance. Paying rent is an important responsibility and you must pay regularly when it is due or you risk losing your home.

Tenants may pay their rent by:
  • Direct Debit – click here to download a Direct Debit Mandate

  • Cheque in the post to Head Office payable to “Teachers’ Housing Association”

Housing Benefit

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.
