If you have been found to be eligible for help, homeless and in priority need the Council has a duty to provide you with temporary accommodation. If you are unintentionally homeless, in priority need and have a local connection with Wrexham County Borough, we have a duty to provide temporary accommodation until you find permanent accommodation.
In certain cases, we may also have to provide you with temporary accommodation whilst Housing Options Officers are still assessing your application, to decide if you are homeless, eligible for help and in priority need.
If you are found to be eligible and in priority need, but homeless intentionally, we have a duty to provide temporary accommodation to give you a reasonable opportunity of securing accommodation for yourself, and to provide you with advice and assistance.
If you are found not to have a priority need, the Council has no legal duty to provide you with temporary accommodation. You will be informed of this decision in writing. You will be offered advice and assistance to try and help you find your own accommodation.
If you are in priority need, you may be provided with temporary accommodation whilst further enquiries are carried out into your case.
This may be:
- Council Temporary Accommodation
- Bed and Breakfast
- Hostel Accommodation
