Nomination Agreements With Partner Local Authorities

A housing corporation should only accept appointments if it is useful. Suitability is considered from the point of view of the association and not of the municipality, cf. R v Northavon DC ex p Smith (1994) 26 HLR 659. Appointments – part of the Council`s partnership with housing corporations (registered providers). Municipalities have a legal obligation to guarantee as a priority suitable housing for the employment of eligible homeless people (housing). However, many local authorities in England and Wales have transferred their housing stock to social landlords, hence the need to help registered providers to fulfil their functions in this area. Even in cases where a municipality still retains/owns its housing stock, the demand for social housing often far outweighs the supply, so municipalities depend on housing companies to provide housing to housing applicants to fulfill their obligation. We act as a central link between the Council, housing companies (registered providers) and other agencies to ensure that the Council has a level of appointment rights for housing corporation real estate, monitors the costs, progress and completion of housing corporation developments throughout the district and ensures that housing corporations maintain an affordable rent level, managing development costs through our joint commissioning agreements. As part of this letter, housing allocation is the process in which a local housing authority selects homeless applicants and refers them to registered housing providers. These include local housing authorities, which work in partnership with social landlords to provide housing for homeless applicants. . .
