Can untrained landlords and agents tell if you have a legal right to be in the UK? Should unpaid landlords and agents have to do the Government’s job of immigration enforcement for them? If you look or sound ‘foreign’ why would a landlord take the risk of prison or a fine to let to you?

JCWI has begun pre-action correspondence to ensure that the Right to Rent scheme is not rolled out further without a full evaluation of discrimination under the scheme and whether or not the scheme is working.

Your pledge will help us:

  • Fund our work, and possibly pay for experts, to prepare the evidence we and others have gathered for a legal challenge
  • Allow us to gather more evidence, if necessary, and to have additional capacity to keep working on the case as it progresses
  • Protect against the risk of paying the Government’s legal costs in the event we are ordered to do so
