Zoom webinar



Successful claimant challenges to the housing needs assessment (HNA) in cases such as ZK v LB Havering [2022] EWHC 1854 (Admin) and UO v LB Redbridge [2023] EWHC 1355 (Admin) have raised real questions as to the statutory purposes of the HNA and the proper and provable application of these to the local authority.

In this webinar, Andy Lane, Sarah Salmon and Tara O’Leary look at how local authorities can avoid legal challenges to this important element of their homelessness powers and duties.
