The Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI) has been granted permission to pursue a judicial review that will challenge the legality of the government's Right to Rent rules.

If successful, the review could lead to the government having to change legislation substantially or even to Right to Rent checks being scrapped.

Stephen Small appears in Property Week discussing the increasing resistance and criticism of Right to Rent.

High Court challenge to the Government's Right to Rent check rules is available to read on the Property Week website.
