Paying your rent
We have made it possible for you to pay your rent in many different ways so that you can choose which method is easiest for you.
Monthly Direct Debit
This is probably the simplest, most convenient way of paying your rent. You don’t have to go to the bank or post office as the money goes directly from your bank account to Newlon. You can pay monthly (on any day of the month), fortnightly or weekly. If your rent changes we automatically alter the amount collected from your bank so you don’t have to. To use this service you need to fill out a direct debit form. You can call 020 7613 8080 or 0800 316 7989 (free from landlines), to set up a direct debit on the phone.
You can save time with an online option. You will need an allpay payment card, as you need to quote the reference number when you register to pay. If you don’t have a card and you would like to order one, then contact the Service Centre on 020 7613 8080 or 0800 316 7989 (freephone).
To pay your rent online now using your allpay payment card visit www.allpayments.net.
The Allpay App
You can opt to pay direct from mobile devices with the allpay app, which is free to download from a variety of app stores. Once you have downloaded the app onto your device you can sign up by entering your email address, your rent payment card number and your bank card details for payment.
- If you have an Android phone you can download the allpay app from Google Play.
- If you have an iPhone you can download it from iTunes.
- If you have a Windows phone you can download the app from the Windows Phone store.
You can opt to pay your rent using allpay’s secure SMS text message payment option. All you need to do is register at www.allpayments.net/textpay. To register you will need a UK registered mobile phone, your credit or debit card and your allpay payment card. If you don’t have an allpay card and you would like to order one, then contact the Service Centre on 020 7613 8080 or 0800 316 7989 (free from landlines).
You can use any debit or credit card to pay your rent over the telephone by calling us on 020 7613 8080 or 0800 316 7989 (freephone). You should allow up to five working days for the payment to process.
