Is this discrimination?

Posted: 13/1/2019


Britain's most notorious landlord has allegedly deliberately evicted single mothers with babies - why? Well Ashord Council in Kent brought out a regulation that where a boiler in a property that is rented to a single mother with a baby breaks down, it must be repaired within 4 days. Wilson says that he doesn't want to risk not being able to fix the boiler in time making him liable for prosecution. It may well be discrimination, but then so is the regulation. It places the rights of single mothers with babies above mothers who have a partner, or a dsiabled or elderly person. What if the boiler needs parts that takes a week to arrive? Clearly yet another ill though out landlord bashing regulation.
