Today, Cornerstone Barristers' Housing Team has published a Homelessness Briefing which addresses particular issues raised for local housing authorities by COVID-19 in respect of their Part 7 homelessness duties and powers. Matters addressed include homelessness presentations, priority need, intentionality and accommodation discharge.
Prepared by Andy Lane, Matt Lewin and Tara O'Leary, the Briefing is available here.
The Housing Team at Cornerstone Barristers will be available for informal telephone conversations, and are well set-up to take on formal Instructions whether that be with regard to Advices or court hearings.
Contact can be made on 020 7242 4986 / 0333 240 0591 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
