Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Homeless

The Housing Executive will only have to help you if you couldn't have avoided becoming homeless. The Intentionality test looks at how you became homeless to see if you deliberately did something or failed to do something and that action caused your homelessness.. The other tests are priority need, homelessness and eligibility.

If the Chancery Master grants your lender possession, the lender has to apply to the Enforcement of Judgments Office to enforce the court's decision. Even at this late stage, you may be able to avoid having to leave your home if you can come up with a realistic proposal of repaying the money owed.

Nivelul de ajutor pe care Housing Executive trebuie să vi-l ofere depinde de circumstanțele dvs. personale. Housing Executive va utiliza 4 teste pentru stabilirea circumstanțelor dvs. locative. Dacă treceți toate cele patru teste, veți deveni Solicitant cu Regim Integral - Full Duty Applicant (FDA) și Housing Executive va accepta faptul că are o responsabilitate pentru a vă găsi locuință permanentă.

Some of the decisions made by the Housing Executive can be challenged using your legal right to request a review. It’s best to get advice from a housing adviser, like those at Housing Rights, if you’re planning on doing this. The law allows you 28 days to ask for a review from the day you are notified of the decision.

Get advice immediately if you think you might become homeless. The Housing Executive has a legal responsibility to give you advice and information on homelessness or you can speak to our advisers at Housing Rights. With the right help, you may be able to stay in or return to your home.

Dacă Housing Executive stabilește că sunteți o persoană fără adăpost, s-ar putea să aveți dreptul la adăpost temporar până când investigația este completată. În cazul în care Housing Executive decide că îndepliniți condițiile pentru statut de Solicitant cu Regim Integral - Full Duty Applicant (FDA), vi se va oferi adăpost temporar până când o locuință permanentă devine disponibilă.

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.

If you pass all 4 homeless tests you’ll be a Full Duty Applicant and the Housing Executive will have to make 3 reasonable offers of housing to you.

Young people, and especially young people leaving care, can be at an increased risk of homelessness and of being exploited because they are homeless. Social Services and the Housing Executive share responsibility for looking after young people who are homeless. There are different responsibilities, depending on your age and how long you've been in care, but these organisations should work together to find you somewhere to live.

The Housing Executive is responsible for providing accommodation for anyone who is legally homeless. To be legally homeless you have to pass 4 tests including the Eligibility test. The other tests are priority need, homelessness and intentionality. You may not be eligible if you are a person from abroad or if the Housing Executive decides you are guilty of unacceptable behaviour. You must also pass a similar eligibility test in order to claim Housing Benefit and Universal Credit.

Dacă nu sunteți mulțumit cu decizia Housing Executive, aveți un drept legal la revizuirea deciziei. În cazul în care Housing Executive nu își schimbă decizia, dvs. tot mai aveți dreptul să vă prezentați cauza în fața Tribunalului Județean, dacă puteți demonstra faptul că Housing Executive a făcut o eroare de drept. Adăpostul temporar poate fi disponibil pe perioada cât așteptați rezultatul revizuirii sau a recursului.
