Local authority decisions on eligibility for accommodation allocation
Rules on notifying decisions on eligibility for accommodation allocation, making a fresh application, and requesting a review.
A local authority must notify the applicant of the decision in writing if it decides that an applicant is ineligible or is not a qualifying person.
Notifying the decision
Right to review
If a local authority decided that an applicant was not a qualifying person, that person can make a fresh application if they consider they would now qualify.
This could be the case, for example, where rent arrears have been cleared.
