What does it cover?

Hosted by LawWorks CEO, Martin Barnes and delivered by Angus King, Solicitor at Lambeth Law Centre and Ian Peacock of Arden Chambers, the webinar covers the legal issues to address when a person applies to the local authority to be housed and the criteria set out in local allocations policies, including housing options and prevention of homelessness duties.

The webinar also looks at:

  • how homelessness applications differ from housing applications;
  • the criteria that needs to be satisfied before the local authority decides whether it has the duty to house the homeless person and their family and;
  • review and appeal rights.
