There are lots of ways you can pay your service charges.

You must use your invoice number as the reference for your payment. If you do not do this, our system will put your payment against the oldest outstanding balance. It will look like you haven’t paid your invoice and a recovery process will start. This can take a long time to sort out.

Pay using your Camden Account

A Camden Account means you can do things like:

  • make a payment and set up payment plans
  • view your service charge account
  • register when your property is sublet

Register if you do not have an account. Use your full name as it appears on your service charge account.  You will also need your customer number as shown on the front of your invoice.

Payments can be found under 'Housing' and then 'View / Pay Invoices'. You can also view the Camden Account guide for leaseholders.

Pay by standing order

We will send you a standing order form with your service charge invoice. You can complete this form and send it to your bank. Alternatively, you can use the details on the form to set up your standing order using your telephone or internet banking. You will need to set up a separate standing order for each invoice you receive.

If you cannot pay on time

If you’re finding it difficult to pay, it’s important to contact us as soon as possible. Email our Collections Team at camdenleaseholderservices@camden.gov.uk. They are here to help and can talk though your options such as a payment plan. 

If you are receiving benefits, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) may help you to pay your service charges. You should inform the DWP as soon as you get a bill. 

If you have problems with money or debt, you can use our benefits calculator and refer yourself to the money advice service.
