If you pass this test the Housing Executive will have to check that you are also homeless, in priority need and that you’re not intentionally homeless. You might be entitled to temporary accommodation while this is happening.
Failing the test
The Housing Executive is not responsible for finding you somewhere to live if you fail the test. They may ask you to
- move out of temporary accommodation, and
- arrange to collect any items they have stored for you.
You can challenge the Housing Executive’s decision that you didn’t pass.
Leaving temporary accommodation
The Housing Executive will ask you to move out of temporary accommodation if you fail the tests. You may be able to stay in temporary housing for longer if
- you are challenging the decision that you are not entitled to housing, or
- you have children or are vulnerable in some way.
