Your FAQ

Question: Does the Council have a housing duty to those seeking asylum?

Answer: Councils do not have a duty to provide accommodation to asylum claimants who made a claim after 3 April 2000. If an asylum seeker has been given leave to remain in the UK and makes a homelessness application the council may refer their application to the local authority where they were provided with accommodation under the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
