Am I homeless?
You are homeless if:
- you have no accommodation at all
- you have somewhere to stay, but you cannot gain entry to it (for example, your landlord has changed the locks)
- you have somewhere to stay, but you are being threatened with violence (for example, by neighbours, a former partner or family member)
- you have somewhere to stay, but it is not reasonable to stay there because of overcrowding and this overcrowding is bad for your health
- you have somewhere to stay, but its poor standard means it is not reasonable for you to stay there
- you have somewhere to stay, but you do not have permission to stay there
- you are living in either B&B accommodation, a hotel, hostel or refuge
- you’ve been staying with family or friends, but they have asked you to leave
- you usually live in a mobile home (for example a caravan or boat), but there is nowhere for you to put it
