Homelessness duty and mandatory order to enforce it: Supreme Court hearing

On 3 and 4 May 2023 the Supreme Court will hear the local housing authority’s appeal in R (Imam) v London Borough of Croydon.

The Supreme Court will determine when a court should make a mandatory order against a local housing authority to enforce a duty owed to a homeless individual under s193(2) of the Housing Act 1996. In particular, it will decide whether the court should take account of either: (a) budgetary constraints imposed on the housing authority; or (b) the availability of housing under a non-secured tenancy under Part VII of the 1996 Act (as opposed to a secured tenancy under Part VI of the 1996 Act).
