Housing advice for Northern Ireland

Priority need

The Housing Executive has a legal responsibility to help homeless people. The amount of help you're entitled to depends on whether you pass 4 homelessness. 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.

Priority need is one of 4 tests you have to pass to be legally homeless. The Housing Executive has to help you with housing if you pass all 4 tests. 

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”.

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.
