Housing Law & The Rights of Homeless People


The Homelessness Reduction Act 2017

Usual course length: 1 day

Courses can be tailor-made from the following elements:

  • Understanding the current prevention duties
  • The key concepts of homelessness law, including who is homeless, what is means to be vulnerable and hence in priority need, and when someone can be found intentionally homelessness.
  • How local authorities should process applications under the HRA
  • The new approach to preventing homelessness - including those deemed not to be in priority need
  • The relief duty owed all those who present to local authorities as actually homeless
  • "The Personalised Housing Plan" and how to ensure that it is lawful.
  • Recognising what decisions relating to the new duties can be challenged by review, and when these are likely to be successful
