Welcome to your home

Moving home can be as challenging as it is exciting. That is why we are committed to making the transition as easy as possible. To help, here are a few important points to consider when you first move home, including the ways we can support you as your landlord.

Four things to do first:

1) Set up your gas and electricity

If your home has gas heating, you will need to contact our contractor to get your gas connected and boiler working on the day you move in. You will also need to set up your gas and electricity supply with a utility company.  Prices for gas and electricity can vary greatly, so it’s worth shopping around for the best quote using a price comparison website.

2) Set up your rent payments

There are many quick and easy ways to keep up to date with rent payments. Direct debit is the easiest way to pay your rent. You can apply to set this up online. Alternatively, you can pay by standing order or over the phone. 

However, whichever method of payment you choose, you are responsible for ensuring payments reach us on time. Remember, if you are on universal credit, you are responsible for setting up and paying your rent.

Ways to pay your rent

3) Set up council tax

You are responsible for paying council tax, so it’s important that you contact your local council to tell them your new address and who is living in your household. If you have a low income, are unemployed or live alone you may be eligible for a discount or some help with paying. If you have moved area, it’s also important to let your previous council know you have left, to make sure you aren’t charged.

4) Insure your contents 

Arranging contents insurance can give you peace of mind if something should happen to your belongings. If there is a fire, flood, storm damage or burglary, we will repair any damage to the property, but we won’t cover the costs of replacing any of your furniture or belongings. We offer contents insurance from £3.57 a month, but we recommend using a price comparison website to find the best option. Get in touch with Customer Services for more information.
