$^1H$ spin lattice relaxation study in the temperature range 439–77 K has been carried out in dimethyl ammonium (DMA) hexabromo selenate. A high temperature phase transition is observed as a dip in $T_1$ around 360 K, followed by a slope change a 222 K, and a discontinuous jump in $T_1$ at 154 K, which are also attributed to phase transitions. DMA diad axis motion and spin– rotation interaction are found to be the dominant mechanisms responsible for the observed $T_1$ behaviour above 222 K, while between 222 and 154 K, DMA torsional oscillations contribute significantly. Below 154 K the relaxation is governed by the methyl group dynamics. The motional effects are also reflected in the second moment variation with temperature.
