There are a number of quick and secure ways to pay your rent: online, by direct debit or by phone
Setting up a direct debit or paying online are the quickest ways to pay:
- Direct debit – easy to set up on MyHomeOnline
Setting up a direct debit is the easiest and most flexible way of paying your rent. It's easy to set up if you have an account with a bank, building society or credit union. You can choose which date to pay and there's no extra charge to you.
Payments can be made weekly, fortnightly, 4-weekly or monthly.
You can set up a direct debit to pay your rent on MyHomeOnline
Log in to MyHomeOnline:

- Allpay payment card – in shops and post offices
We issue all tenants with an allpay payment card. This can be used anywhere you see the Post Office, PayPoint or e-pay logos.
You can pay with cash or debit and credit cards. Always remember to keep your receipt.
- Paying by standing order
A standing order is a regular, fixed payment from your bank account.
You'll need to arrange this with your bank. If you have online banking or a banking app you may be able to set it up through that.
You can decide the date and how often you want to pay by using the following bank details:
Bank: Barclays Bank, Sir Frank Whittle Road, Derby, DE1 9NT.
Sort Code: 20-25-85
Account Number: 20656992
You must quote your tenancy number.
You can find this on your MyHomeOnline account:
Click on the 'View Account/Make Payment' button:
You will see your tenancy number at the bottom of the screen:
