Dear ‎Mr Heale,‏
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000
 
Thank you for your request for information which was received on 29
November 2021.
 
You requested:
 
1. Does the Human Rights Act apply to housing provision? If so, what are
the relevant clauses (letters/numbers) of this Act?

2. Does the Equality Act apply to housing? If so, please provide me with
the relevant clauses.

3. Does Protection from Harassment law apply to housing?

4. Does the Misuse of Communications Act apply to housing?

5. What other main laws (other than those that apply specifically to
Long-Leasehold) are on the statute book and apply to Housing situations?
 
We are writing to ask you to clarify your request. This is because we are
not certain that we have understood your request correctly and we need
further details from you in order to identify and locate the information.
 
Currently your request is mostly asking open ended questions with yes/no
answers, this is not a valid request and is also not enabling us to locate
recorded information related to your enquiry.  Therefore could you please
be more specific in relation to the information you are requesting.  If
you are having trouble in framing a valid question we would be happy to
advise you or alternatively the ICO website provides a guide for making
requests:

Unfortunately we will not be able to take this matter further without this
extra information from you.
 
Yours sincerely

Dear Despatch Box,
You asked me to clarify my freedom Of Information questions regarding "HOUSING and relevant LAW". Please could you let me know whether those Acts of Parliament (Human Rights Act; Equality Act; Protection from Harassment Act; and Misuse of Communications Act) apply to housing situations and what the relevant clauses of each Act are as they apply to housing.

Also, please list all OTHER Acts of Parliament (other than those that specifically apply to Long-Leasehold housing) that also apply to housing and where possible the relevant clauses of those Acts.

I hope that this is sufficiently clear. Thanks in anticipation.

Yours sincerely,

Rob Heale
