(a)it ceases to be subject to any duty under section 68 ( interim duty to secure accommodation for homeless applicants in priority need), andd

(b)it is not subject to any duty under section 73 ( duty to help to secure accommodation for homeless applicants);

but it must secure that suitable accommodation is available for occupation by the applicant until the applicant is notified of the decision whether the conditions for referral of the case are met.

(2)When it has been decided whether the conditions for referral are met, the notifying authority must notify the applicant in accordance with section 84.
