Major breakthrough in protecting tenants with disabilities from eviction
Housing charity Shelter has welcomed a Supreme Court judgement which says there has been “significant implications” for the protection of tenants with disabilities living in rented accommodation.
Shelter believe that the outcome following the trial of Akerman-Livingstone V Aster Communities is likely to help tenants with disabilities in rented housing who are threatened with eviction when they have limited security and the reason they are being evicted is linked to their disability, reports 24dash.
Commenting after the Supreme Court hearing, Michelle Crabbe, the Shelter Bristol solicitor involved in the case, said the judgment represented “a major and significant step towards ensuring that the rights of disabled tenants under the Equality Act to protection from unjustified eviction are properly considered by the courts”.
