Pay your rent

The TMO manages your home and delivers the housing services. We collect the rent on a weekly basis on behalf of Southwark Council and pass the rent directly to the council.

There are several ways to pay your rent:

  • Online here;
  • Set up a Direct Debit or Standing Order with your bank. You will need to provide your bank with Southwark Council’s sort code 62-22-32 and account number 27540022. You will also need your 10 digit rent account number. Visit for more details;
  • Telephone Southwark Council on 0845 6000 611 to pay by debit or credit card. You will need your rent account number to hand;
  • Paypoint Outlets – Use your Paypoint card to pay at any Post Office or local shop displaying the Paypoint sign. To request a replacement Paypoint card contact the TMO Housing Office on 0203 643 6941 or visit;
  • Post a cheque to: Southwark Council Income, Operations Team Finance, and Governance, PO Box 68119, London SE1P 4GP. Cheques should be made payable to Southwark Council and enclose your 10 digit rent account number. Do not send cash.

If you are struggling to pay your rent and are worried about making ends meet please talk to us as soon as possible so that we can work out a way forward together. Remember, you need to keep your rent account in credit. If you don’t pay your rent you could lose your home.

Southwark Citizens Advice also offers independent, professional advice to help you manage your money and check you are receiving your full benefit entitlement.
