Acknowledging a section 85 homeless review request, and confirming the review procedure & deadline for submissions
On receiving a review request from a homeless applicant you must, within five working days:
- notify the applicant that they may make written and/or oral representations to the authority in connection with the review, and
- notify the applicant of the procedure that will be followed in connection with the review (if you haven't already done so).
This letter enables you to comply with these regulatory requirements. It also confirms the date by which the applicant should forward all their submissions to the authority.
Note: this letter is not suitable if:
- the review decision has been contracted out to a third party, or
- the original decision under review was whether the local connection referral conditions were satisfied (i.e. a decision under section 80(5) of the Housing (Wales) Act 2014, which was made either jointly by the two authorities or by a referee).
