star this property answer text <p>The Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018 is helping to drive up standards in the private and social rented sectors by putting an obligation on landlords to ensure that any rented residential properties are free of all hazards, including overcrowding, from which a risk of harm may arise to the health or safety of the tenant or another occupier of the property. This requirement applies from the outset and for the duration of the tenancy.</p><p>This Department has not made a specific assessment of the implications for properties that are smaller than 13 square metres in relation to the Homes Act. The courts will decide whether a property is fit for human habitation by considering the matters set out in section 10 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985, which includes the ‘overcrowding’ hazard prescribed in the Housing Health and Safety (England) Regulations 2005. Each property is assessed on its own merits, and if a property is so small as to be hazardously overcrowded, tenants will have the right to take action in the courts for breach of contract on the grounds that the property is unfit for human habitation.</p><p>Government is also reviewing the hazards set out in the 2005 Regulations as part of the comprehensive review of the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS).</p><p> </p>

The 51,500 figure in the Justlife report includes anyone who has spend any time in bed and breakfast accommodation over the financial year, however short.

star this property answer text <p>Measuring “hidden homelessness” is a complex issue. It will always be difficult by its nature – people are often not in contact with services, and it is challenging to establish everything that is going on in people’s lives. <br> <br> The Department does collect information on overcrowding and on concealed households (usually defined as single adults or groups of adults, with or without children, who occupy the accommodation with, but do not belong to, the household reference person’s family unit) through the English Housing Survey. Additional information is being collected through this survey to identify people who have experienced homelessness. <br> <br> The Homelessness Reduction Act brings more people such as single homeless households into scope to receive assistance from their local authority. These households were not assisted or reported through the old P1E collection, until the end of March 2018. Details on these non-priority need, single households often living with friends and family have been captured through the Department’s new case level data collection system, Homelessness Case Level Information Collection (H-CLIC), since April 2018. This data can be found online here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/live-tables-on-homelessness" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/live-tables-on-homelessness</a><br> <br> The new data collection system, H-CLIC, captures information on households approaching for and receiving homelessness assistance, household demographics and the circumstances surrounding their homelessness. This includes any support needs of the homeless household. In time it will enable MHCLG to monitor repeat homelessness where people come back to services. It will help identify more detail on the circumstances of households vulnerable to homelessness and the interventions that are successful in preventing homelessness in the first place.</p>
