Unlawful housing reasonable
Harouki v Kensington and Chelsea London Borough Council
Court of Appeal
“Where a tenant applied to be treated as homeless because where she lived with her family was statutorily overcrowded, and occupation of such accommodation was a summary offence under section 327 of the Housing Act 1985, the housing authority was entitled to conclude, having regard to local conditions, that it would not be unreasonable for the family to stay there.”
