Using retained RTB receipts to buy temporary accomodation

My client is proposing to buy temporary accommodation for homeless families. The acquisition is to be financed by using 30% retained RTB receipts and the balance from General Fund borrowing. The argument is that these properties can be defined as Social Housing under Part 2 of Housing & Regeneration Act 2008. Has any other Authorities undertaken such acquisitions and if so how did they get on when the Pooling Return was audited?

  • Hi DG.

    We are also considering this route, I''d be grateful if you would be willing to share the basis under which housing for temporary accommodation can be classed as social housing. (There are conflicting views here.) My email is Julie.dorrington at nottinghamcity dot gov dot uk (disguised to avoid being added to spam robots).

    Many thanks
