Rent collection free weeks
The rent collection free weeks for 2018 - 2019 are:
• 26 March 2018
• 2 April 2018
• 24 December 2018
• 31 December 2018
If you pay your rent monthly, you will not see any change because of rent collection free weeks.
Rent is due on a Monday, so there are sometimes months which have five weeks:
• January 2018 • April 2018 • July 2018 • October 2018 • December 2018
If you pay the same amount for your rent each month, then you will not pay extra in the months with five weeks, but you will not pay less in the months with rent collection free weeks.
If you pay your rent weekly, then you must pay every week, and then you will be able to miss payments in the rent collection free weeks.
If you have fallen into arrears, then we expect you to make payments in the rent collection free weeks to reduce the arrears.
Rent collection free weeks are set as:
•The first Monday in April
•The Monday before Christmas (or Christmas Day if it falls on a Monday)
•The Monday after Christmas
•The last Monday in March
So week commencing 25 March 2019 will also be a rent collection free week if you pay your rent weekly.
