How to appeal a decision about your application

We aim to ensure that the decisions we make are correct. If you don't agree with a decision we have made about your housing application then please speak to us about it. If, after speaking to us you are still not satisfied with our decision, you have the right to appeal.

What decisions can you appeal?

You can appeal if you think that:

  • you have been placed on the wrong list;
  • the assessment of your needs is wrong;
  • you have been unfairly suspended from the housing register;
  • your application has been cancelled unreasonably;
  • the offer of housing made to you is unreasonable;
  • the Medical Adviser's decision is wrong
