Applying for a home  

If you are looking for a Council or Housing Association home in Hartlepool you need to register for rehousing on the Compass website.


Compass is a 'choice based' rehousing system run by a partnership made up from the five Tees Valley local authorities and eight registered providers.

To apply for housing you can contact the Housing Services Team at Hartlepool Civic Centre or apply on line.  

Properties are advertised on a weekly basis through the Compass webiste.

The cycle opens every Thursday morning at 00.01hrs and closes the following Tuesday at midnight. You cannot bid on a Wednesday.


The Compass Partnership is currently completing a review of the scheme with the aim to improve the way it currently advertises properties that are available on the web based system.

The Partnership would be grateful if you would take the time to complete a quick survey by 24th August 2015 and provide it with any feedback.

A summary of the responses will be published on the website and will be made availalbe at all partner offices. Please follow the link below to complete the survey:
