Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Why can't you keep staying with friends please?
Have you asked for the policy at all?
Sorry I was just considering this. You need to get the Council's own policy. See what that says.
Then you can see what it says - if you are intentionally homeless then they may have a duty to house you. But it would only be in B&B accommodation - it would not be in a Council house.
Once you check the policy you can see where you come on it. If you disagree then you can consider a Judicial Review of the decision. This is where a High Court Judge examines the decision of the Council to see whether their actions are legal and reasonable.
A Court can either agree with the decision or send it back for further consideration.
For more information on Judicial Review please see:https://www.justice.gov.uk/downloads/courts/administrative-court/applying-for-judicial-review.pdf
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
