Paying your rent

How to pay your rent

You are responsible for paying your rent and service charges to EHSL, whether this is via Housing Benefit or from other funds. Non-payment of rent is a breach of tenancy and if not resolved can result in the loss of your home. A reference should be given for any payments into EHSL’s bank account, so we can quickly allocate the payment to you.
