Rent Payment

All rent is payable in advance, whether demanded or not, preferably by standing order. Standing Order mandates can be issued at the commencement of the tenancy and should be completed and returned in good time for the next rent due date.  A further mandate is available upon request and this is the most convenient method of paying your rent.  Should you not be in a position to pay by Standing Order you may pay by cheque;  this should be made payable to Norrow Estates Limited and sent to: -Norrow Estates Limited, 5 Paradise Square, Sheffield S1 2DE  Please ensure that your name, address and tenancy reference is written on the back of the cheque. In the event that you fall into arrears on payment of rent during your tenancy, appropriate steps will be taken to recover all outstanding monies.  This could involve action being taken against you in a Court of Law and may result in you being served by the Judge with an Order for Possession, which will result in you being required to vacate the property.  In addition, if legal action is taken against you, legal costs may be incurred by you.  If you experience difficulty in keeping up with rental payments, it is vital that you notify this office at the earliest opportunity.
