Request a refund

You may be able to get a refund if you’ve paid us more rent than you needed to (known as being ‘in credit’).

You can’t get a rent or service charge refund if you have an upcoming payment that’s more than the amount you want refunded.

After you’ve requested a refund

We’ll be in touch within 5 working days. We need to check your account before approving your refund.

Once approved, we’ll email you a link where you can give us your bank details. We’ll then pay you within 10 working days.

If we can’t give you a refund, we’ll get in touch and explain why.


If you get Universal Credit or Housing Benefit

Before processing your refund, we will need to check with your local authority to make sure you’re not getting overpaid. We’ll contact you if there is an issue.


If you get a ‘verification failed’ error message

This message can sometimes appear when you’re providing your bank details. If you see it, get in touch and we’ll help move your refund along.
