Changes On How to Pay Your Rent

Published: Tuesday 12 June 2018

Tenancy Conditions for all city council tenancies change on 25th June 2018. One of the main changes from this date is that paying rent by Direct Debit will be a condition of your tenancy.


Direct Debit is our preferred method of payment as it saves you and the council time and money when making a payment. It is the only method of payment that comes with a guarantee. 


  • It avoids arrears & helps to sustain tenancies
  • Is quick and simple to set up, and can be done over the phone
  • You will not need to remember to pay your rent, and will not miss any rent payments
  • Changes to the amount due is done automatically when the rent changes


Rent is calculated weekly, and is payable as soon as the tenancy agreement is signed, as it is due in advance.  Our Direct Debit payment cycles can be tailored to suit your needs (weekly, fortnightly or monthly) and which option you prefer will be discussed with you when you view your potential home.

SCC Housing Register Renewal Letters

Published: Wednesday 22 March 2017

Throughout 2018 we will continue our ongoing review of the SCC housing Register. This means we will be asking everyone who has applied for social housing to log on, into their housing application to check and update their details.

Not all customers will be reviewed at the same time. If you have a housing application we will contact you to ask you to update your details. You must do this within the specified timescale, which is normally 28 days from the date on your letter.

To Renew your housing application, regardless of whether or not you make any changes you will be required to submit Identification documents (ID) for all your household members. Further information about the Renewal process and ID requirements can be found on your Renewal letter or by clicking the link below.


To login you will need your housing application number which is included on the Renewals letter and is shown on any previous correspondence from us.

You will also need your memorable date which is personal to you.  There is a facility on the Sheffield Property Shop website which will allow you to reset this if you have forgotten it.

If you do not complete the Renewal when we ask you to and submit all the required ID , your housing application will be cancelled and you will lose any waiting time you have built up. If this happens and you still want to be considered for social housing you will need to complete a new housing application.
