Setting up Standing Order Forms

Standing order forms are available to download directly from our web site here. If you complete your downloaded standing order form using the guide below, we are able to instruct your bank to setup up automatic payments for you.  Some, if not all management companies allow you to make 10 monthly payments throughout the year. 

However, this is dependent upon agreement being received from the residential company directors for residents to pay their service charge contributions by instalments.  Should monthly instalments be permitted, all service charge payments must be received within two months of the financial year end to ensure financial stability of the management company.

Please be aware that standing orders and direct debits are different.  A standing order has a shelf life and therefore will be active for a dedicated time period. A direct debit will remain active indefinitely or until cancelled by you.

Generally standing orders sent you by Merlin Estates will have the majority of the completed for you.  All that remains is for you to sign it and present it to your bank for actioning.
