    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Allocations 28-Mar-2019

    Summary: Miss X complained about the Council's failure to allocate her a suitable property after it decanted her several years ago from her Council home.

This falls within the remit of the Housing Ombudsman service and is outside our jurisdiction.

  • Sheffield City Council (18 009 535)

    Statement Upheld Allocations 25-Mar-2019

    Summary: Miss B complains about the way the Council has considered her application for re-housing and the priority awarded to her application. Miss B says that because the Council downgraded her application she is unlikely to be able to make a successful bid for a property. She says she needs to be closer to family for support and her current property is having an adverse impact on her health. There was fault by the Council in not allowing Miss B time to make direct bids with the increased priority the Council had awarded. As a result she missed out on a property and had the priority removed before she had chance to make a successful bid. The Council will, within a month of this decision, apologise, reinstate the higher priority and pay £500.

There was fault in the way the Council dealt with Mr X's homeless application, and this fault has caused Mr X an injustice.

  • Sheffield City Council (18 017 102)

    Statement Closed after initial enquiries Allocations 22-Mar-2019

    Summary: The Ombudsman will not investigate Mr B's complaint about the Council reducing his housing priority band from Band D to Band E. Further consideration of the complaint is unlikely to find fault with the way the Council made its decision.
