Rent Direct

Rent Direct is available for landlords and tenants who want to take advantage of our guarantee to transfer all of the tenants Housing Benefit directly to the landlord. Both landlord and tenant must open a Solent Credit union account and we will transfer the tenants housing benefit directly to the landlords account. We will not take anything from that benefit for other payments (for example if a loan repayment is due). There is a small charge to the Landlord for this service, however the savings made in credit control and reduced defaulting is well worth it to the landlord. The tenant too benefits from knowing their rent will be paid, without having to check their account or have to deliver it in person.
