You can pay your rent by Standing Order weekly or monthly.

Standing Orders are simple and once set up, payments will automatically be paid out of your bank account - meaning its one less thing for you to worry about!

You can also choose what date of the month to make your payment and also if you want payments to be weekly or monthly.
