You are able to ask your council to review a decision they have made regarding your claim for accommodation. Decisions that can be appealed include;
- One stating you do not qualify for long-term housing – not being a priority need for example
- One that refers you to a different council due to a lack of local links
- One that offers you unsuitable housing
In order to get the council to review a decision you must request the review within 21 days of receiving the initial decision. The council will only consider late requests if you can prove there was a good reason for the delay. This is normally done by sending a letter to your council.
The council will expect further information such as proof that supports your belief that you qualify for housing, medical details (if you are claiming health issues are a contributing factor in your appeal for long term accommodation) or proof of circumstances the council did not initially take into account.
