Financial aid from the social services due to rent arrears
The starting point for this study is landlords’ applications to the county bailiff, threatening indivi- duals with eviction from housing due to rent arrears. Various workplace standards of importance for assistance from the social services are investigated. The study shows that financial aid plays a limited role in relation to evictions, and the interpretation of the rights provision in the Social Services Acts displays a considerable span. Decisions on aid are based on everything from an indi- vidual needs assessment to a group-oriented and retrospective behavioural assessment. The Social Services Act is, in practice, exclusively perceived to be a framework law, rather than a rights law, that enables this breadth of interpretation.
