Pay your rent

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to pay your rent so Lambeth offer a variety of payment methods.

How to pay your rent


You can pay your rent securely online using the Lambeth rent payments page.

By phone

You can pay your rent by credit or debit card by calling the Lambeth 24-hour automated telephone service on (020) 8290 2086.

You will need your nine-digit rent payment reference number, which you can find at the top of your rent statement or any rent arrears letters we may have sent you.

By Direct Debit

Direct Debit is a safe and easy way for you to pay your rent. By setting up a Direct Debit you give Lambeth permission to take the money for your rent from your bank account in agreed amounts at agreed times.To set up a Direct Debit to pay your rent call Lambeth on (020) 7926 6000. It’s quick and easy to set up.

By Standing Order

To make regular automatic payments direct from your bank account, contact Lambeth on (020) 7926 6000 or visit the office for a standing order mandate form or more information.

Payments can be made in the Lambeth Cashiers’ Office at:

Brixton Customer Centre,
18 Brixton Hill,
Open Monday to Friday 9am – 4.15pm.

At any Post Office

You can pay at any post office branch using your rent payment card. Hand your card and payment to the cashier, and they will credit your payment and give you a receipt.

You can pay with a debit card, cash or by cheque – these must be made payable to Post Office Ltd.

By Post

If you prefer to pay by post please send a cheque made payable to London Borough of Lambeth.

Write your name, address and rent reference number on the back and post it to:

Lambeth Revenue Services
PO Box 22003

Do not send cash through the post.

Rent Arrears

The tenancy conditions, which you sign at the start of your tenancy mean that by law, you must pay your rent regularly and not get into debt. If you do not pay your rent on time or you do not pay at all we will have to take legal action and we could end your tenancy.
