Homelessness guidance and support
If your relationship is breaking down
Many people become homeless when a relationship breaks up.
Your rights will vary depending on your circumstances, but the following issues are among the most important to your rights:
- If you are married to your partner
- If you have children
- Whose name is on the tenancy or mortgage
- If your partner has been violent to you
If you have been assaulted by your partner, help and emergency accommodation is available from a network of women's refuges. Visit our domestic abuse advice section.
