Making Good and homeless figures

Via Garden Court’s 10 March 2008 bulletin.

Birmingham (yes them again) have had their tenancy agreement found to be misleading by the Ombudsman in terms of their liability for making good damage resulting from repairs.

Homeless figures are out for the last quarter of 2007. Decreases in both decisions (6%) and acceptances (1%) on the previous quarter.

There are a couple of interesting case reports in there too, not yet reported elsewhere:

Hassan Omar v City of Westminster [2008] EWCA Civ, [2008] All ER (D) 38 (Mar)

and

R(Niypo) v Croydon LBC [2008] EWHC Admin, [2008] All ER (D) 24 (Mar)

both on aspects of homelessness, so read the bulletin…
