Social housing

Social housing in Stockton-on-Tees is managed by Registered Providers (more commonly known as Housing Associations) in partnership with us and other Local Authorities across the Tees Valley.

To apply for a socially rented property, you will need to register for an account on Tees Valley Homefinder. Once you have registered, you will be required to upload your supporting documentation.

By registering with Tees Valley Homefinder you will have the option to search for available homes and bid for your preferred properties. To ensure that all bids are considered please read the property advertisements thoroughly and ensure you meet the criteria detailed on the advert prior to bidding.  

To request a copy of our customer guide to assist you in registering an account please email the Lettings and Nominations team at

Register for the Tees Valley Home FinderĀ 

Tees Valley Homefinder will advertise a percentage of all Registered Providers properties with the remaining being advertised directly by the Registered Provider using their own allocation policies. 

For more information on how Social Housing is allocated please read the Common Allocation Policy for Tees Valley Lettings Partnership.

If you are unable to register an application with Tees Valley Homefinder and wish to make an appointment for assistance, please contact the Lettings and Nominations Team by emailing or telephone 01642 524345.

To be considered for all social housing property vacancies, we recommend that you register directly with the Registered Providers which offer housing suitable for your needs. For information on which type of properties are available and how to apply please visit each of the providers' individual websites.
