Pay rent

We know money is tight – but paying your rent should be No.1 on your list. It keeps the roof over your head.

Worried about your rent - talk to us now

There are three easy ways to pay your rent:

  • Direct Debit – simple to set up and the most hassle-free way to pay your rent. Your payment will come off your bank account on a date and at a frequency that suits you.

    If you don’t have a bank account, we can help you get one. Set up a Direct Debit using a My WLHP online account or call us on 01506 416 438.

  • My WLHP – an online account is a quick and easy way to pay online, view your balance, recent charges and payments. Click on the box below to register/login to pay using My WLHP.

  • Call us – phone us on 01506 416 438 to pay by debit or credit card.

Other ways to pay:

Housing Benefit – If you receive full housing benefit, your rent is likely to be paid to us directly by West Lothian Council. If you receive partial housing benefit, you are responsible for paying the rest. Speak to your housing officer if you need any advice.

If you are worried about your rent, TALK TO US NOW.

Don’t wait until it’s too late. We’re here to help. Your housing officer has a range of support services to get you back on track.

When is my rent due?

Rent is paid in advance as soon as you receive the keys to your new home.

You can choose to pay each week, fortnight, four-weekly or monthly. It’s up to you.
