Can I refuse my temporary accommodation? Click to get info
If you're entitled to an offer of temporary accommodation from us, we'll only offer you one suitable property. Here's what will happen if you refuse it.
If this is an interim offer, before we've made a decision on your homelessness application, then you'll need to find your own accommodation. If we then accept your homeless application, we will make a second offer to you.
If we've already accepted your homelessness application, and you refuse, then we will no longer have a duty to house you.
If you believe the accommodation is unsuitable, you have the right to request a review of our decision. You must request this in writing within 21 days.
Who is responsible for paying my rent? Click to get info
You are responsible for paying your rent. Temporary accommodation can be expensive, and Housing Benefit may not cover all your rent.
You must keep up-to-date with your payments and not get into arrears. If you get in arrears, you won't be entitled to an offer of permanent housing from us. You may be evicted from your temporary accommodation.
