Supported Housing and the Law is the only legal book for those working in the supported housing sector that offers guidance on how to deliver good quality services and improve tenancy management. By promoting best practice models for the provision of housing, care and support, this book aims to support providers to empower vulnerable tenants to live independently and enjoy a good quality of life.

Contents include:-

  • the legal foundations of housing law including contract, tenure, homelessness and human rights
  • the regulatory framework including the role of the Housing Corporation, the inspection regime of the Audit Commission and the continually changing face of the Supporting People programme
  • practical guidance: drafting and managing occupancy agreements, rent reviews, confidentiality, managing information, managing behaviour and responsibilities towards vulnerable occupiers
  • court and ADR procedures: injunctions, possession proceedings and anti-social behaviour
  • appendices: policy checklists, statutory materials, extracts from regulatory documents and precedents
Supported Housing and the Law is required reading for housing and support providers including registered social landlords, managing agents, advice agencies, housing associations, Supporting People commissioners and legal practitioners concerned with improving practice in tenancy management for the benefit of vulnerable tenants. It should also be an invaluable resource for tenants and their advocates empowering them to ensure that they receive quality services.
