    They're morons aren't they?
    The legislation doesn't make right to rent checks mandatory and no one is "obliged" to carry them out.

    That's one of the reasons the law creates discrimination because you can choose to rent to people where the checks appear not to be necessary instead of people with foreign and complicated documents.

    Written statement made yesterday by Caroline Nokes. (The Minister of State for Immigration, if you were wondering).

    https://www.parliament.uk/business/p...3-05/HCWS1379/

    We disagree with this finding and the Home Office has been granted permission to appeal all aspects of the judgment.

    In the meantime, the provisions passed by this House in 2014 remain in force. There are no immediate changes to the operation of the policy. Landlords and letting agents are still obliged to conduct Right to Rent checks as required in legislation.

    They must not discriminate against anyone on the basis of their colour or where they come from.

    I think you may have missed the point, or in fact two. The first is that the effect of the legislation is that makes landlords who would not otherwise discriminate, discriminate for fear of being penalised. The second (and probably what interests the RLA) is that it effectively imposes on landlords a requirement to be immigration officers.

    It may of course be that the RLA are also outraged at a law which scythes through the ancient principle that where the Queen's writ runs all are equal under the law.

    It's not concerning itself with the rights of illegal immigrants.
    It's concerned that landlords are being encouraged to discriminate illegally by a stupid law.

    If the border control is so lax that people with no right to reside can stay in the country, that needs to be sorted out without making landlords do the work.

    Did you also notice the article on that website about Natwest scrapping 'No DSS' clauses in BTL mortgages?

    More love for the Human Rights Act on its way from the government.

    Millions to Eurotunnel, probation service in tatters and now this.
    Great morning for the government.
