Rent & any other charges due must be paid weekly, fortnightly or monthly in advance, as per the terms of your tenancy agreement.
Your rent is charged in advance to your rent account on the Monday of each week, together with any other charges due.
It is your responsibility and the responsibility of any other tenants named on your tenancy agreement to pay your rent on time and in full. It’s important to understand that while other named occupants in the household might contribute to the rent, the named tenant(s) that have signed your tenancy agreement are solely or jointly responsible for paying the rent – and clearing any arrears due.
How to pay
- Payment can be made by cash, cheque or postal order. Cheques and postal orders should be crossed and made payable to “The Iveagh Trust”.
- Payment by standing order may be arranged on request, please contact your Estate Manager if you would like to pay your rent in this manner.
1: By standing order
You can set up a standing order payment with your bank to be paid monthly, fortnightly or weekly. We will provide you with a Standing Order Form containing all the information you need to set up your standing order – all you need to do is fill in your own details and take it to your bank, without delay.
2: At your estate office
If you live on an older Iveagh Trust estate, you may be able to pay your rent at your local estate office. Check with your estate manager for weekly opening times.
3: Household budget scheme
If you collect a social welfare payment at the Post Office, you may be able to pay your bills, including your rent, through An Post’s Household Budget Scheme.
The Household Budget Scheme will automatically deduct your rent from your social welfare payment and pass it directly to the Iveagh Trust.

It is your responsibility to ensure that your rent and service charges are paid weekly in advance, on or before the Monday of each week. Failure to pay your rent is a breach of your tenancy agreement and we will write to you immediately. Continuous failure to pay your rent will lead to the termination of your tenancy.
If you are unable to make a payment, please get in touch as soon as possible. We will endeavour to work with you and, if possible, put in place an arrangement to clear any arrears on your account.
Receipts & Statements
We will provide you with a full statement of your rent account, four times a year. You can also request a statement of your rent account at any time.
The rent statement will clearly outline the week number, rental charge, amount paid and current balance for the preceding three months. If you have any questions at all about what’s in your rent statement, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. You should keep your rent statements in a secure place for your own records.
