The reasons for making a housing options approach and the property of the applicant are highly related. For example, the decreases in approaches from those in a private rented property and those owning and buying tie in with the decrease in reasons of 'termination of tenancy / mortgage' and 'other action by landlords'. Similarly, the increase in approaches from those staying with friends and family ties in with the rise in reasons of being 'asked to leave' and 'household disputes'.
Again, the trends in reasons and property are similar to those experienced for those assessed as homeless. Notably, the earlier mentioned emergency coronavirus legislation to temporarily extend eviction notice periods, the temporary ban on home repossessions and mortgage payment deferrals have all contributed to the decrease in approaches from the private rented sector and those owning/buying.
