The Association of Housing Advice Services

Consultation on Domestic Abuse Allocation

We would advise Housing Needs Departments to read and respond to this consultation on changes to the Local Connections as it has implications for your Allocation teams. As is currently proposed if the applicant has at any time in the past held a secure tenancy (and regardless of why they lost it – arrears, ASB etc) they qualify for a secure tenancy without probationary period. Allocations are going to have to amend their applications to record lifetime housing history.
