Customers are responsible for paying for emergency accommodation and pets are usually not allowed. If you are in receipt of housing benefit, it will normally cover it. If you are earning more than £16,000 p.a you will have to pay it yourself and you could be located anywhere in Cornwall.

If you are fleeing domestic abuse, make sure you tell the council and if offered a place in Refuge, take it if it is a possible solution to keep you safe.
