We know it is difficult at the moment, but you do need to continue to pay your rent. Given we are all trying to limit contact and stop the spread of this virus, the best way to pay your rent is through our websites, via the tenant app or via the phone.
If your employment status has changed or you need to talk to us about your rent, please speak to us as soon as possible. Our teams will still be here for you.
WCHG are aware some residents have already been made redundant or are having to take unpaid leave or reduce their hours. It is a time of great uncertainty for everyone but there is help and advice out there. You can access information from ‘The Money Advice Service’, a free and impartial service set up by the government, which look at your rights to sick pay, changes to claiming your benefits and what it means for travel.

When is it due?
Your rent is due in advance every Monday from the start of your tenancy. You can also make arrangements with your Rent Officer to pay weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
Whichever payment method you choose, you will pay the same amount over the year. You should not be in rent arrears irrespective of your method of payment.
Your Rent Officer can help you answer questions about your rent and any benefit entitlements. They can help you make an income and spending plan that will help you look after your money. They can also help you to complete forms about your rent or benefits.
We also have Financial Inclusion Officers, who can give you free specialist advice on money issues.
