Rent Free Weeks

 

Your rent is calculated over 48 weeks, rather than 52. During the remaining four weeks, there are no debits made to your rent account. These are often referred to as "Rent Free" weeks and are split into two, two-week periods: one at the end of March/April and one at the end of December. Depending on the balance of your rent account, you may still have to pay during these weeks.

If your rent account is clear

If you are up-to-date with your rent payments, this means you can treat these weeks as "rent free" and you can choose not to pay during them.

If you owe rent or are behind on rent payments

If you are in arrears with your rent you must make payments during these weeks. As there is no rent debit, everything you pay will be taken fully from the amount you owe.
