*Temur v Hackney London Borough Council

Housing – Homeless person. The appellant appealed against a review decision made by the local authority that she was not homeless. The Court of Appeal, Civil Division, in dismissing the appeal, held that the authority had had power to substitute an adverse decision on different grounds, namely, that the appellant was not homeless instead of the original decision that she had not been in priority need. Further, it had not erred in failing to carry out a hazard assessment or failed to look to the future when considering whether the appellant had been homeless.
