Guide to homelessness duties in Wales

A guide to homelessness duties owed by local authorities to homeless applicants in Wales under Part 2 of the Housing (Wales) Act 2014.

There's a chapter for each duty, that sets out:

  • the qualifying criteria (when the duty is owed)
  • what the duty obliges the local authority to do, and
  • the discharge criteria (when the duty can lawfully ended).

For council / housing association staff who are approved users, there are hyperlinks in the guide to homelessness letters and documents in the Resources section.

A guide which lists all the homelessness letters for councils in Wales is also available.
