We want to make it as easy as possible for you to pay your rent and other charges. We have a variety of payment options available. Before you start, you will need your payment reference number. For rent, this is the eight-digit reference that you were given when you signed your tenancy agreement and received your keys, for example, 6002769F.
You can pay online anywhere using your smartphone, tablet or computer. You just need to be connected to the internet and have your debit or credit card handy.
Debit Debit is one of the easiest ways of paying your rent and other charges. With a Direct Debit, your payment is taken directly from your bank account on an agreed date each week or month. This helps you to keep track of what you’re spending and reduce the chance of falling behind.
We can offer you a Direct Debit for any of the following Wolverhampton Homes charges:
- rent on your home or garage
- tidy garden scheme
- recharge repairs
- fencing charges
- charges for a new driveway hard standing
- court costs
- services charges if you are a leaseholder
- home contents insurance
We can also offer you a range of payment dates.
