    EU migrants - Right to Rent

    I am correct: It is illegal to discriminate because of nationality.

    EU citizens have an unrestricted right to rent. For this purpose they are exactly the same as British citizens by law.

    I think you misunderstand my contention

    Currently EU nationals indeed have the RTR

    My point is that if that situation changes, the same as for any other migrant tenant that their leave to remain is a very important business factor for LL

    So given the choice between a tenant who has permanent leave to remain I would actively discriminate against any tenant prospect that did not have permanent RTR

    The reason is I do not wish to be involved in tenant churn and am therefore legally entitled to make a BUSINESS decision not to rent to anyone who doesn't have that permanent RTR.

    Of course I realise that I may be depriving myself of good tenants, but that is my BUSINESS choice.

    A tenant without such permanent RTR may not like the fact that I have declined them.

    That is just TOUGH!

    Providing I do not discriminate against all the usual suspects then I may perfectly well discriminate against any person who did not have permanent RTR.

    I accept that I could be depriving myself of BUSINESS opportunity, but of course that would be my choice!!
