An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers
If you are called upon from time to time in a professional capacity to advise the homeless and their families, then make sure you acquire "Homelessness and Allocations" for your professional library. In this fast moving area of law, this book, now in its eighth edition, has established itself as the definitive guide to the rights of the homeless.
One of the latest of the estimable Legal Action Group's `adviser' publications, "Homelessness and Allocations" robustly continues the LAG's ongoing mission to compile, write and publish meticulously researched works of reference, mainly for professional advisers -- legal practitioners, local government and housing officers, academics and the like -- or those of us, quite frankly, who are desperate. And there are few other conditions in life which occasion as much desperation as homelessness.
Clear, succinct and accurate, "Homelessness and Allocations" sets the law in its context. There is much new material in this new edition, from the 2009 Code of Guidance on Housing... to new guidance on intentional homelessness and mortgage arrears... to additional means of providing housing. In the appendices you'll find the latest consolidated legislation and guidance. There's also, interestingly, a note on late developments, which precedes the copious tables of cases, statutes, statutory instruments and European legislation. The book's publication date is February 2010.
`Homelessness is inherently a complex problem,' comments the author, Andrew Arden QC, and `deserves the maximum effort - as the volume of cases makes clear, practitioners are more than willing to give it.Read more ›
