Homelessness Accommodation Duties

If you are eligible for emergency accommodation you will be housed as soon as possible and normally in either;

  • A Bed and Breakfast
  • Homelessness Hostel
  • Self-contained accommodation

The council is expected to find you emergency accommodation that is suitable and appropriate to your individual situation. Things that should be taken into account include;

  • Where the housing is located – your council will try their hardest to ensure your housing is close to your work, family or current area.
  • Rent cost – you will have to pay rent in your emergency accommodation and the council should ensure that you are paying rent that you can afford
  • How long you stay in emergency accommodation – pregnant women or people with young children should only be housed in shared accommodation or a B&B for a maximum of six weeks before they are found more suitable accommodation
  • Accessibility – the council should ensure that your emergency accommodation is accessible, this will include appropriate facilities if you suffer from a disability.
  • Standards – heating, fire safety and room size are all taken into account and should meet the guidelines set out by the Secretary of State
