Paying your rent is your main responsibility as a CKH customer. We expect you to pay on time, every time.
Login to MyCKH to pay online. Have your credit or debit card details to hand to make an immediate, secure payment. Check your current balance or download a copy of your rent statement whenever you need to on MyCKH.
Call our 24/7 automated payment line to make a payment with your credit or debit card over the phone 0330 088 3786.
You can also pay your rent easily online using the secure AllPay website. You'll need to register online before making your first payment.
Allpay has recently made some changes to increase the security of online, text and app payments. You may be asked to verify your payment through your banking app, by providing a unique code sent to your mobile phone, or answering a personal security question. If you use a Mastercard or Visa card to buy things online, you’ve probably had to verify other online purchases already. The process is the same and is simply here to help protect you and your money.

The government freeze on eviction proceedings has ended. If you have not spoken to us about a serious debt on your account or a broken payment agreement, we may decide to take you to court. Deliberate non-payment is unacceptable, however if you are willing to work with us to get your account on track, we can offer advice and support. We think that’s fair and hope you agree. We are determined to support our customers affected by coronavirus to stay in their homes, but we can only help if you talk to us.
You can find more information about the possession process at gov.uk.
