Rent changes for council housing tenants

The way we charge rent on our council housing is changing – but tenants don’t need to do anything.

As of April 2022, Tenancy Agreements will change and rent will then be charged on a weekly basis, instead of monthly. Providing more options for tenants to decide how they wish to pay their rent.  

Any tenants already paying their rent monthly or fortnightly may continue to do so, or they can choose to opt to pay weekly.

Kirklees Council housing tenants have been consulted on these changes and have received the revised Tenancy Agreement.

This is a legal document that formalises the change to a weekly charge from monthly.  

What does this mean for me?

In practice, everything stays the same for how you pay. You don’t need to change your payments to weekly and can continue to pay as you do now even whether its on a fortnightly or monthly basis.
