Haile v Waltham Forest London Borough Council [2014] EWCA Civ 792; [2014] WLR (D) 257

‘The question of whether a person applying to a local authority for housing accommodation was intentionally homeless within the meaning of section 193 of the Housing Act 1996, with the result that the local authority was under no duty to provide such accommodation to her under that section, was to be determined by reference to whether the person’s homelessness was intentional on the date on which she became homeless and not on the date of the local authority’s decision.’
