As part of MLRC’s work, we provide training in housing law to organisations and individuals working in the field of homelessness. In January, MLRC held a training session in advanced housing law staff of Crosscare. Our training session gave practical advice and information, with a focus on an overview of housing law and the law relating to homelessness, including relevant fair procedures principles; overcoming specific barriers to getting on the housing list – including the local connection test; ownership of property; and requests for evidence proving non-ownership of property; and the application of the law regarding non-nationals accessing the housing list and/or emergency accommodation.  For more on this session, and on how to book a training session, please click on 'Latest News' above.
