Paying Rent

< Back to list

Your tenancy agreement will state how much rent you pay, and how and when you should pay it.

Once you agree to pay your rent in a certain way, then that is how you must pay. If your agreement states a place where the rent must be paid, you must pay at this location.

If the agreement does not state a place for paying the rent, you must pay at an appropriate place During your agreement the way you pay your rent cannot be changed without your written consent.

However, the lessor, agent or provider can change the place at which you pay your rent, if the change is reasonable. Your lessor, agent or provider can only use your rent payments for rent. They must not use your rent money for another purpose, for example to pay for repairs, service charges or fees.
