Housing (Wales) Act 2014

Section 63 – Notice of the outcome of assessment

136.A local housing authority must notify an applicant of the outcome of its assessment. If its decision is against the applicant’s interests, it must give reasons for that decision in the notice it issues. The notice, which must be in writing, must inform the applicant of his or her right to a review of the decision and of the time period within which a request for a review must be made. The time period is set out in section 85(5); and unless the authority allows for a different period, the request will have to be made before the end of 21 days beginning with the day the applicant was notified of the decision. If the notice is not received by the applicant, it is treated as having been given if it is made available at the authority’s office for a reasonable period for collection by the applicant or by someone on the applicant’s behalf.
