Khadra Farah V Hillingdon London Borough Council [2014] EWCA Civ 359

01 Jan 2018

Housing, Public Law and Judicial Review

In conducting a review of an applicant’s eligibility for accommodation under the Housing Act 1996 s202, a reviewing officer had failed to give reasons for accepting the correctness of a housing officer’s conclusion that the applicant’s accommodation had been affordable and that she had become homeless intentionally by failing to pay her rent when it fell due. The review decision was set aside and remitted for reconsideration by another housing officer.
