Rent free weeks

Your rent is payable for 48 weeks of the year. Usually, this means that there are four weeks per year when no rent is charged. These are called ‘no collection weeks’. On leap years, there are usually five rent free weeks.

If you pay monthly by direct debit you will still make a payment every month (i.e. 12 payments per year) but this will be calculated to take into account these no collection weeks.

The no collection weeks for 2023/24 are:

  • 29 May 2023
  • 28 August 2023
  • 25 December 2023
  • 25 March 2024

If you are in arrears, you still need to make payments in these weeks. No collection or rent free weeks give you an opportunity to catch up.
