Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Intentionally homeless

The Housing Executive has a legal responsibility to help people who pass the 4 homelessness tests. The tests look at whether you are homeless, why you are homeless, whether you're entitled to help and whether you're in greater need of help than other people.

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.

The Housing Executive will have a duty to offer you accommodation if it is satisfied that you are a Full Duty Applicant. You will be a Full Duty Applicant if you pass all 4 homeless tests also known as “hurdles”.

If you are a tenant of the Housing Executive or a housing association, your tenancy could be ended using if your landlord thinks you’ve left the property without following the right procedure.

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.
