the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI) has obtained permission to challenge the government Right To Rent policy in the High Court. The full hearing is set for court on the 18th and 19th of December this year.
The JCWI release stated: ““This is going to be the first proper chance a court in the UK will have to determine the legality of the hostile environment Theresa May created that conscripted ordinary people into acting as her border guards.
“We are close to ending this pernicious experiment once and for all.”
David Smith, of the RLA who are supporting the action said: “Landlords will welcome the High Court decision to allow a judicial review of the Right to Rent policy which has put them in the impossible position of acting as untrained border police trying to ascertain who does and who does not have the right to be in the country. This has created difficulties for many legitimate tenants as landlords are forced to play safe and only rent to those with a UK passport.”
