It’s rent-free fortnight from 19 March 2018. As long as you are up to date with your rent payments, you won’t have to pay during these weeks.

If you pay monthly or by direct debit you’ll still benefit as these weeks are taken off your bill and spread equally over the 48 weeks rent that is charged.

If you are behind with your payments or you are reducing your arrears through a payment agreement or Court Order, you must continue to pay during rent-free fortnight.

Direct debit is the best way to keep up to date with your rent and is hassle free for you to set up, simply call your local rents team on 01691 677230 (Oswestry) or 01746 335310 (Bridgnorth).
