Please find your bank from the list below, and follow the steps to set up your standing order for rent!

  • If your bank isn't on this list, please let us know and we'll add it!
  • At the time of signing the contract, you will also be sent details on the standing order that you need to set up. You can use these details in conjunction with our bank details to complete the standing order!

General Guide

Via Phone and Branch Banking

  • If you don't have online banking, please phone your bank or visit them at a branch to set up the standing order! You can use the information provided from us to set it up!

Via Online Banking

Once you've got to the correct page on your online banking, it's time to use the information provided by us to set up your standing order!

The important values are:

  • Initial payment and amount
  • Recurring payment and amount
  • End payment

For example, let's say your rent is £500 per calendar month, your tenancy starts on the 1st of July, and it ends on the 30th of June. (Please Note that if you're paying quarterly, the dates and payments will be different!)s

  • The initial payment would be £500 (or 3x this amount if paying quarterly), and is due 2 working days before your tenancy starts - 29th June in this case!
  • The regular payments would be £500 on the 1st of every month, starting from the 1st of August.
  • The final payment would be £500 on the 1st of June next year.

A list of fields that may or may not be required include:

  • The account you wish to pay the standing order from
  • The frequency of the payments [Usually monthly, unless you have agreed with us to pay rent every 3 months (quarterly)]
  • The day of the month to pay the standing order [This should nearly always be the 1st of the month]
  • The usual payment amount [Your monthly/quarterly rental amount]
  • Payment reference [This should be your flat identifier, e.g. 'MGF01' for Flat 1, Maple Gardens' etc.]
  • First payment date [2 working days before the start of your tenancy - we need to be in receipt of the first month's rent before we release keys to you!]
  • Last payment date [The start of the month that is the end of your tenancy]
  • Our bank account details
