If you are homeless and the council has refused to house you or has delayed the allocation of council housing to you, it may be possible to apply for Judicial Review which is part of the Appeals process.
In successful cases involving Judicial Review, it is likely an applicant will be awarded compensation for not being housed – or for any delay in housing allocation by the local council.
There several decisions which may be appealed, including;
- Your eligibility for help
- What the council will or won’t help you with
- A decision to send you to another area because you are not considered to have a local connection to your current area.
- The suitability of the provided accommodation
- Delays or refusals
It is also possible to take legal action if you are allocated a home by the local council which is in such a poor state of repair that you could be considered homeless, for example, the property has serious damp.
