Am I Homeless?
If you are in any of these situations, then the law says you are homeless, and Glasgow City Council has a legal duty to help you. You are legally homeless if you
- have no accommodation at all
- are living in temporary accomodation, for example a hostel, bed and breakfast or a hotel
- usually live in a mobile home, for example a caravan or boat, but there is nowhere for you to put it
You are also legally homeless if you have accomodation, and
- you cannot gain entry to it, for example because the landlord has changed the locks
- you are being threatened with violence, for example from a partner, ex-partner or neighbours
- it is not reasonable for you to stay there because of overcrowding which is affecting your health
- it is not reasonable for you to stay there because it is of such a poor standard
- you don't have permission to stay there
- family or friends that you have been staying with have asked you to leave
You are also legally entitled to make a homelessness application if you are likely to be in any of these situations in the next 56 days.
