Homelessness and Allocations was first published after the Housing (Homeless Persons) Act 1977 brought new duties towards the homeless into force, since when it has recorded and analysed development of this area of the law, while Andrew Arden himself has contributed to, and helped to shape, its development acting in cases up to and including the highest courts from the earliest days of the new law to the present time.
The tenth edition is up to date with what continues to be a large number of reported decisions and includes the Homelessness Reduction Act 2017 with its new prevention and initial help duties. It also provides coverage of the separate development of homelessness law in Wales under the Housing (Wales) Act 2014 Part 2 and of the new Care Act 2014 regime.
Appendices include the key English legislative provisions in consolidated form and principal guidance. Chapter 12 includes a useful set of precedents for practitioners.
Homelessness and Allocations is essential reading for housing lawyers and advisers, local authority housing and homelessness officers and housing associations seeking authoritative, accurate and accessible guidance on local authority duties and the rights of the homeless.
