The Government has today laid The Homelessness (Suitability of Accommodation) (England) Order 2012 SI 2012 No. 2601. It comes into force on 9 November 2012
This sets out the issues for determining suitability (or the lack thereof) of accommodation for discharge of the full homeless duty by offer of private sector accommodation.
This is going to be a regulation we will probably be spending a lot of time on. Certainly 3. will be pored over in detail and given the 9 November 2012 commencement, sooner rather than later.
But only for those of us in England. The SI doesn’t extend to Wales. Where we are all moving (posts passim).
