Sometimes your agreement or lease will state how it must be paid. 

Paying your Rent and Service Charges

Direct Debit

Direct Debit is a simple, safe, and convenient way to manage your bills and make regular payments from your bank or building society account. Direct Debit is automatic, so, once it is set up, you don’t have to worry, even if the amount you pay changes. 

The easiest way to set up a Direct Debit is to call us, we can set up a Direct Debit over the phone.

Alternatively, you can complete the Direct Debit mandate and return it to us via email.

One of the benefits of Direct Debit is that you can choose what date and how often your payments are made, so you could ask for the money to leave your account just after you receive your wages or benefits. Any payments will be taken on or immediately after the date you have chosen.


Under the Direct Debit guarantee if Accent or your Bank or Building Society makes an error, you are guaranteed a full and immediate refund of the amount paid.

We will always give you at least 30 days notice in advance of any change. As long as you wish to continue paying by Direct Debit you do not need to do anything.

Yes. If you'd like to cancel your Direct Debit please Contact Us.

53 Week Years

Occasionally the rent and service charge year has 53 weeks instead of 52.  This is the case for 2024/25, meaning that from 1 April 2024 to 31 March 2025, there will be 53 Mondays. You may or may not be affected by this depending on the frequency of your charges, how you pay and any benefits you receive.  Please refer to our 53 Week Financial Year page for more details.
