Living in Your Neighbourhood

Everyone is entitled to live in peace and quiet in their own home, and not be unduly disturbed by the behaviour of neighbours. Cirencester Housing works with tenants and other agencies such as Protection Services Officers, local authorities and the police to ensure that your estates are a safe place to live. We expect our tenants to be considerate to their neighbours and not to cause nuisance or harassment and take all reports of harassment and discrimination seriously.

Rent & Service Charges

Your rent, including service charge is payable in advance and depends on the frequency you pay your rent. Your rent is based on a per week basis due every Monday. You may agree with us to pay your rent on a different frequency. However, if you fall into arrears we may revert to requiring you to pay your rent weekly until such a time as you are able to pay regularly in advance.
