Paying your rent

Rent

Your rent is due monthly and should be paid by Standing Order or by Internet Banking.

Other charges

All tenants are responsible for paying their Parish Occupier Rates and telephone bills.

Most tenants are responsible for paying their own electricity, gas (where applicable), water bills and other household charges. 

However, tenants living on some of our estates will pay these charges to our Managers. All new tenants will be notified about their responsibilities in this respect.

Rental assistance

The Jersey Homes Trust is a private sector landlord. 

As a tenant of the Jersey Homes Trust you may be eligible to apply for housing benefit as part of the Income Support Scheme operated by the States of Jersey. To find out more go to www.gov.je
