53 week year

53 week year

This is a reminder that your rent is charged every Monday and in the year April 2019 to March 2020 there are 53 Mondays, therefore there is an extra week rent charge this year. If your tenancy agreement includes non-chargeable weeks, your normal number of non-chargeable weeks will be deducted from the 53 weeks.

Please ensure that when arranging your rent payments this year you include the extra week, if you have not already done so.

If you pay by direct debit, this will have been calculated for you already. If you pay by another method and need help to work out what you need to pay, please contact us on 0300 555 5560.

If you receive Universal Credit, you will receive a maximum of 52 weeks’ payments paid in 12 monthly instalments over the year from the DWP. Any shortfall will need to be paid by yourself.

If you know you will struggle with affording this extra week rent charge, please contact us as soon as possible so we can discuss the best way to help you. As well as phoning our Customer Service Centre, you can text RENT HELP to 66099 and one of our friendly, expert advisors will contact you.
