Rent can easily be paid automatically each month via direct debit on the 1st of the month. This will all be set up when you sign the lease. Ultimately, we want to make living in The Collective as easy as possible for you. If you move in halfway through the month, you’ll only pay for those days rather than the whole month.
Otherwise, you may bank-in or pay your rent by T/T.
