One lucky winner will win £1000!

The £1000 prize draw aims to encourage tenants to switch to the ease and convenience of Direct Debit to make sure they never miss a rent payment.

Around 8000 Kirklees tenants now pay their rent by Direct Debit and no longer have to remember to make payments or worry about getting behind with their rent. Direct Debit is also the cheapest payment method, something that’s increasingly important in this time of budget cuts.

The campaign is run by Bacs Payment Schemes Limited (Bacs), the not-for-profit organisation behind Direct Debit in the UK. It offers five centrally-funded prizes of £1,000 worth of Love2shop vouchers, simply for switching their rent payments to Direct Debit. And, the good news for those already paying this way is that they will automatically be entered into the draw as well.

You have until 30 October 2015 to sign-up to pay by Direct Debit, either by returning a completed Direct Debit Instruction form by post or by calling 01484 414886 to arrange over the phone.
