The easiest way to pay your rent is if you have your benefit paid into a bank or building society account so you can arrange to pay the rent to your landlord automatically via standing order or direct debit.
If you do not already have a bank or building society account, you may wish to set one up as it will be of benefit to you in terms of paying your rent to your landlord.
