A lucky tenant has won one week’s free rent just for signing up to manage his account online.
Timothy Lee from Measham is a North West Leicestershire District Council tenant. He is the first winner of the monthly draw, which the authority is running to encourage tenants to sign up for online rent accounts – My Rent Account.
Mr Lee said: “I’ve used My Rent Account on a number of occasions since registering in April. It’s easy to access and use to check my rent statement and make online payments without having to wait in any queues or speak to anyone.”
Monthly draws will continue for the first year to win either one week’s free rent or a paint pack (choice of paint, brushes etc.) to the equivalent value. ‘Super Draws’ will take place in July and September 2017 as well as in January and April 2018. The winners of these draws will receive a month’s rent paid on their behalf by North West Leicestershire District Council.
Glyn Jones, Director of Housing at North West Leicestershire District Council, said: “We all manage so much of our daily lives online now and My Rent Account is an easy and efficient way for tenants to manage their rent with us. It means they can make payments, change personal details and check their account any time, without having to call or come in to see us. We’re running this monthly draw for a year to really get as many people signed up to the online service as possible. Congratulations to Mr Lee and best of luck to everyone else who signs up.”
Any North West Leicestershire District Council tenant who signs up to My Rent Account is eligible for the monthly draw and Super Draws.
Registration for My Rent Account is free and takes just a few minutes at www.nwleics.gov.uk/myrentaccount. Anyone who would like help signing up can contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 01530 454798.
