It’s been two years since we changed to a 52 week rent period. This means that there are no rent free weeks at Merthyr Valleys Homes – rent is charged each week of the year.


With Christmas approaching we understand there may be pressure to spend out more than you may usually in a month.



The Money Advice Service has a free budget planner which puts you in control of your spending, use the link below to get started today:



Remember – Merthyr Valleys Homes are also here to support you.
