Accepting the full duty despite intentional homelessness (s.75(3))

Notifying a homeless applicant that, upon reviewing their assessment, the council has decided the 'full' duty to secure accommodation is owed, under section 75 of the Housing (Wales) Act 2014.

Use this version when:

  • The relief duty has ended either because 56 days has passed or because you've decided before the 56th day of relief that reasonable steps have been taken.
  • The applicant's homelessness was intentional, and
  • The applicant 'escapes' disqualification from the full s.75 housing duty because of their dependant child, pregnant woman or young person priority need status.

The letter warns the applicant of the possible consequences if they apply for help in future because of intentional homelessness (under the five year rule, under s.75(3)(f)).
