Since 2001, we have been providing an independent housing reviews (S166A & S202 Housing Act 1996) service to local authorities. As service providers, we carry out allocation scheme and homelessness reviews on behalf of local authorities in an efficient and cost effective manner with very little administrative back-up required from the local authority. To date, we have completed over 7,500 S202 Reviews (homeless reviews) and S166A Reviews (allocations reviews). During this time we have gained a reputation for providing a quality service at an affordable price; and have shown that our knowledge and interpretation of homelessness, associated legislation and case law is second to none.

 

We are fully committed to providing a professional service and therefore only employ qualified and experienced staff. We leave no stone unturned in our pursuit to make legally correct and fair decisions. Our work has been commended by local authorities all over England, in the County Courts and the Court of Appeal.
 

We are a fully supportive service which means that we provide local authorities with all the resources they need to investigate homeless applications and write legally sound decisions. This includes providing decision letter templates, GP medical questionnaires, homeless application forms, letters to landlords, advice and other services, as needed.

If you are looking to contract out your S166A, S202 and/or your Flexible Tenancies function; or if you require temporary assistance to help clear a backlog of s.184 decisions, you need look no further than our company.

We also provide a full training programme for homeless and prevention officers, practical homelessness conferences and carry out audits of homeless decisions and services.

 

Please give us a call and we will be happy to discuss your requirements.
