Lewisham Homes collects rent on behalf of Lewisham Council. Your rent is used to fund many of the services we provide.
This page provides information on the ways you can pay your rent and how to check the balance of your account.
If you are struggling to pay your rent, your Income Officer or Welfare Benefits Advisor will be able to help you.
