There is no freestanding duty to notify a homeless applicant of a decision that the duty to protect their belongings (under section 211 of the Housing Act 1996) does not apply in their case.
However, it may sometimes make good administrative sense to notify this type of decision, and give reasons. For example if the applicant has queried why no action has been taken to protect their belongings.
This letter provides a template enabling the decision-maker to notify a negative decision, give reasons, and demonstrate the matters they've taken into account in reaching their decision.
