Homelessness Review

Local authorities have a duty to house homeless people in certain circumstances. Hodge Jones & Allen has a fearsome reputation for challenging unlawful decisions taken by local authorities. If your housing application has been unlawfully turned down, we can help you get the decision changed and get you housed in the meantime.

We can challenge local authorities if they fail to:-

  • House someone whilst a decision is pending on their homelessness application
  • Accept a homelessness application where a tenant has a legitimate case to be housed
  • Reach a decision on a homelessness application within 33 days
  • Communicate a homelessness decision or failure to complete a homelessness review

Hodge Jones & Allen are recognised as one of the highest ranking law firms for social housing and tenant law in the UK. We are one of only four firms in the UK to be listed as a Tier 1 firm for this area of law in the Legal 500 guide. We are also recommended as a leading team in housing law by Chambers UK.

You will find our solicitors are passionately committed to defending the rights of those in need of housing. We will fight rigorously to get the best possible result we can achieve.

Case Study

Our client, a vulnerable man with several health problems, applied as homeless to Brent Council. Brent Council refused to house him as they did not consider him to be vulnerable or have a priority need for accommodation. After we challenged Brent Council’s decision several times, including two County Court appeals, they finally accepted they had a duty to house our client.
