Two issues that have popped up recently and House would appreciate some obviously informal views on them.
1) If a Local Authority takes a ‘Homeless application’ from a person and places that person into accommodation under sec 188 is another LA obliged to take a ‘Homeless application’ from that person if approached or can they say ‘it’s reasonable for you to continue to occupy your emergency accommodation so no reason to believe you may be homeless off you trot back to LA number 1’?
2) If a person is accommodated under 188 could they ‘withdraw’ their application and approach another LA as homeless or is there a danger they might be found IH?
House thinks that in 1) the LA don’t have to take an approach and in 2) the LA could try it.
Is House mad? Should House be a Housing adviser?
Should House move to Australia and bbq steaks on a beach in the sun?
House has never liked multiple applications…
