We ‘same day’ process rent payments received however rent payments received late in a working day and after office hours are processed the next working day which could be after a weekend or bank holiday or both.

  • Rent payments that fall due on a bank holiday are not compellable until the following day [S1 Banking and Financial Dealings Act 1971]
  • Rents are not overdue until midnight of the rent day [Aspinall v Aspinall 1961]
