Notifying another local authority (the 'receiving' authority) that the section 198 local connection referral conditions are met (referral request)
Use this letter template to:
- notify another local authority that you consider the local connection referral conditions are met in respect of an applicant who has applied to your council as homeless, and
- request that they confirm whether they agree that the referral conditions are met.
The letter includes alternative paragraphs depending whether:
- the relief duty would otherwise be owed, or
- the main housing duty would otherwise be owed.
Note: this template should be used in conjunction with the standard referral request form contained in the Local Authorities' Agreement ("Procedures for Referrals of Homeless Applicants to Another Local Authority").
