You are entitled to 3 reasonable offers of accommodation. When you get an offer you'll have an opportunity to view the property. Your offer letter should explain how much you'll have to pay for the property.
Na Irlanda do Norte, existem quatro opções de habitação: pode querer arrendar uma propriedade a um senhorio privado, pode ter alojamento fornecido pelo seu empregador, pode procurar aceder à habitação social do Executivo da habitação ou da associação da Habitação (podem aplicar-se algumas restrições para pessoas estrangeiras), pode querer comprar uma casa.
You're only entitled to 3 reasonable offers. If you're offered a property that you don't want you'll lose one of these offers unless you can show the Housing Executive or housing association that the offer wasn't reasonable. How you challenge the decision depends on whether you've passed the 4 homelessness tests of not.
If you’re having problems at home you may feel like you’ve no option but to leave. If you’re worried for your safety if you stay or you’ve been thrown out, try to go somewhere you feel safe, like a relative or friend’s house.
If you don’t pass all four homelessness tests, or hurdles, you will not be awarded Full Duty Applicant status. You may still, however, be able to get permanently housed if you ask to be assessed under the Housing Executive’s Selection Scheme.
There are a few different schemes that may be of assistance if you are planning to buy a home in the near future. These include shared ownership schemes, where you part buy and part rent, a rent to buy scheme that will pay you a rebate on some of the rent you’ve paid and government backed savings schemes which will give you a bonus to add to your deposit.
You'll have to renew your application every year and if you don't do this, you'll be removed from the waiting list. It's important that you keep your details up to date. A change in your circumstances could mean you're entitled to more points. You can also lose points if your circumstances change.
