Housing office payment counters to close

by The Gateshead Housing Company & filed under Get in touch - your housing office, News.

Blaydon_housing_office_altBy the end of October the payment counters at Birtley, Leam Lane and Blaydon housing offices will close. Customers will still be able to access other services at these housing offices, where the neighbourhood housing teams will continue to be based.

The counters have seen a decline in use in recent years, as customers switch to more convenient methods such as paying online, by direct debit or by standing order.

Rent and Income Manager Jonathan Graham said: “There are many other ways to pay your rent. In particular, standing orders and direct debits are safe, quick and easy. To find out more and request a form email us or call 0191 433 6150.”

You can read more at our How do I pay my rent? page.

Anyone who has any questions about the changes can attend one of our drop-in sessions, or contact us in the usual way.
