Doka v London Borough of Southwark

Housing – Homeless person. A more or less unbroken period of accommodation for two years was not regarded as settled accommodation for the purposes of assessing intentional homelessness under the Housing Act 1996 as the arrangement had, at all times, been a precarious arrangement with a finite duration. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division therefore dismissed the appellant's appeal against the decision of the the reviewing officer of the respondent local authority as he had correctly applied the authorities as they had stood and the decision had not disclosed an error of law.
