Housing (Amendment) Act (Northern Ireland) 2010

Section 4: Power of the Department to prescribe form of advice and assistance

The Housing Executive is required under Articles 10 and 11 of the Housing (Northern Ireland) Order 1988 to provide advice and assistance to applicants who are homeless or threatened with homelessness but do not meet the full statutory criteria for re-housing. However, the legislation does not specify what form the advice or assistance should take. Section 4 therefore enables the Department to prescribe the kind of advice and assistance that the Housing Executive is required to provide in such cases.
