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 (ie 12 payments per year) but this will be calculated to take into account these no collection weeks.

The no collection weeks for 2020/21 are the weeks commencing:

  • 31 May 2021
  • 30 August 2021
  • 20 December 2021
  • 28 March 2022

Please note that 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.

Why information is on a different website
We are in the process of adding information to this new unitary council website. Some pages will give you a link back to a previous council website to help you find what you need. Read more about the changes.
