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 in 2019:
• March 2019 • June 2019 • August 2019 • November 2019 •
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
