Direct Debit or Standing Order


Recommended Posts


I will be a new landlord in less than 2 weeks! A point that was bought up when discussing payments with my new tenant was the method of payment.

Basically I would see the two options being Direct Debit or Standing Order. Could you guys suggest which one is the best to use and also whether they are free to set up!

Hi Andy,

I'm don't think you can create a Direct Debit between personal (ie: tenant to landlord) bank accounts.

Standing Order is the usual method for the payment of rent.

I always ask my new tenants to complete a Standing Order Mandate (that I provide) and then I send it to their bank. This ensures that 1) the standing order form is completed properly and 2) it gets sent to their bank.

Good luck,
