Part 2 Homelessness

Section 65 - Meaning of help to secure

138.Where a local housing authority is required to “help to secure” (rather than “to secure”) that suitable accommodation is available under this Chapter, or does not cease to be available, it must take reasonable steps to do so. In taking those steps, it can take into account the need to make the best use of the authority’s resources. It is not required to provide accommodation.
