Homelessness Decisions: Review, Appeal Or Judicial Review?


Very Informative and helpful speakers.

Karina Farid
Solicitor | MBK Solicitors


In this free 1 hour webinar, Elizabeth Mottershaw and Rosalind Burgin of Garden Court North Chambers will outline the ways to challenge decisions about accommodating the homeless.

This webinar will look at options under the Housing Act 1996, including when local authorities review a decision late, fail to review their decision, or refuse to review their decision. The seminar will also look at Home Office decisions under the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 regarding asylum seekers, and at the practicalities of urgent JRs.

Target Audience

This webinar is aimed at legal practitioners and those working with them, with an assumed basic knowledge of the topic area.


The recording and slides were available for three months following the event.
