Trindade v London Borough of Hackney

Housing – Homeless person. In a local authority decision on homelessness, s 191(2) of the Housing Act 1996 was directed to ignorance of a fact which existed at the time of the deliberate act or omission of the applicant for social housing, and did not cover mistakes about future events which might or might not occur, the Court of Appeal, Civil Division so confirmed in dismissing the appellants application against a decision of intentional homelessness made by the relevant local authority.
