The easiest way to pay your rent is to set up a direct debit or use Barnet Council’s online payment service.

You can also pay by the following methods:

By phone

Using a credit or debit card on 0845 356 3456. You will need your nine digit rent account number to use this automated service, which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Electron cards and American Express are not accepted by this service. There is a charge of 1.8% for credit card payments to cover the processing costs. There is no charge for debit cards.

Your housing officer can take payments by phone and these will show on your account the following day.

At the post office

Pay by cash or cheque using the rent payment card. To order a new rent payment card, please contact us.

At shops with ‘paypoint’ outlets

Please phone us and we will send you a letter with a barcode on it that you take to a paypoint outlet with your cash payment (paypoint outlets only accept cash).

By post

All payments by crossed cheque and postal order must be made payable to ‘London Borough of Barnet’ and sent to:

Cashiers, Finance, 1 Floor Building 4, North London Business Park, Oakleigh Road South, London N11 1NP

Your address and nine digit account number must be written on the back of the cheque or postal order.

By standing order

Use a standing order from your bank or building society straight to your rent account. Our bank details are as follows:

Sort code: 60-23-36
Account No: 82622833
