You do not need to complete a new Direct Debit instruction, as details of the change will be supplied by us to your bank. Your bank may also notify you independently of the change. 

The new Direct Debit will be collected by Go Cardless and ‘L&GAFFORDABLEHOMES’ will appear on your bank or building society statement.  

The new Direct Debit will collect payments the 1st of each month, in line with your lease or tenancy agreement. If the 1st falls on a weekend or bank holiday, the Direct Debit will be collected on the next working day. 

Go Cardless will notify you each month when they are taking the payment, and you will continue to enjoy the benefits of the Direct Debit Guarantee. 

Once transferred, you will be able to see details of your Direct Debit in My Brolly. You will receive more detailed communication from us about your direct debit in due course. 

You will not be able to set up a new Direct Debit during the transition period, but once you have access to My Brolly, you will be able to set one up there if you do not have one already. 

When will this change take effect? 
You will be able to pay your rent through ‘My Brolly’ from early May.  

If you currently have a Direct Debit set up, the first payment taken by Go Cardless will be for your May rent, due on the 1 May 2024.
