We are committed to do whatever we can to reduce the exposure of people to the Coronavirus, those people who use our service, live in our properties, our staff and colleagues.  I want to update you in regard to rent payments and repairs.

  1. We are not currently receiving rent/cash payments at the Estate office and tenants are requested to set up a Bank transfer (form enclosed), if they haven’t got this in place already. If you choose not to set up a bank transfer then it is recommended that you keep all of your rent payments secure until time when your rent can be paid directly.
  2. We recognise that for some of our tenants their individual circumstance could have changed due to the current situation.  For any Tenants experiencing financial hardship currently it is highly recommended that you make an application for both Housing and Council Tax benefit.  This can be done On-line for residents in Hartlepool at
