Challenging homelessness decisions

Requesting a review

You can request a review if the council has made a decision about your homelessness application that you think is wrong.

County court appeals

If you are still not happy after the council reviews its decision, you can appeal further to the county court.

Complaining to the ombudsman

If you think the council didn't follow the correct procedure or acted unfairly over your application, you can complain to the local government ombudsman

Judicial review

Judicial review is the legal procedure used to challenge the way that the council made its decision, rather than the decision itself
