Homeless or at risk of becoming homeless?
Under Part 2 of the Housing (Wales) Act 2014, Denbighshire County Council has certain responsibilities towards people who are homeless or are threatened with homelessness.
Legally you are homeless if you:
- have nowhere to live in this country or anywhere else in the world that is available for you to occupy
- have no legal right to remain in your home
- have somewhere to live but cannot get into the property
- have somewhere to live but it is not reasonable for you to stay there, for example, it is probable that this will lead to the person, or a member of their household, being subjected to abuse’
- have a boat, caravan or mobile home but you have nowhere to put it
You can also get advice and assistance if it’s likely that you will be homeless in the next 56 days. This may be because:
- difficulty paying your mortgage or rent
- a breakdown in your relationship with your parents or partner which means you can no longer live with them
- harassment or intimidation
- receiving a notice to quit from your landlord
- being harassed by your landlord
- your property is in poor condition
- your rent is in arrears
- dispute with your landlord over a bond or deposit
