Housing – Homeless person. The claimants were housed with their families in interim accommodation by the defendant local authorities (the authorities). The accommodation was provided pending investigation into whether the authorities owed the claimants a duty under the Housing Act 1996. The authorities decided that the claimants and their families had become intentionally homeless, and required them to leave. The Supreme Court held that the authorities had not been required to obtain court orders before evicting them pursuant to ss 3(1) and 3(2B) of the Protection from Eviction Act 1977 as contended and, further, that doing so had not violated their rights under art 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
