R (on the application of Sambotin) v Brent London Borough Council

Housing – Homeless person. The Administrative Court, in allowing the claimant's application for judicial review, quashed the defendant local housing authority's decision that he was not eligible for housing assistance, despite an earlier decision to the contrary. The authority had previously reached a final decision which had not been based on a fundamental mistake of fact and it had failed to provide reasons to justify its view that it had been entitled to make the second decision.
