Help us fund legal challenge to Cost of Living legislation
As members will be aware, SAL together with coalition partners Propertymark and Scottish Land & Estates have submitted a petition to the Court of Session in Edinburgh seeking a judicial review of the Cost of Living legislation. The judicial review is to be heard by the Hon. Lord Harrower in the Court of Session. The Court has assigned a procedural hearing for 20 April and a substantive hearing for 4 May. It is likely that the Court of Session decision will not be known until several weeks after the hearing on 4 May.
None of the three organisations involved in this case have the resources to challenge the Scottish Government alone. Bringing a judicial review is expensive, with the initial review likely to cost more than £60,000 in legal costs and court fees.
We need help to fund the cost of this action, and are calling on individuals and businesses working in the private rented sector to offer their financial support as we challenge this legislation. We have set up a crowdfunding page at https://www.crowdjustice.com/draft/9000/r/O95s8mYvTD-pd7GQngejaw/ for those who are able to make a financial contribution to the case. Please do share this link with anyone you know who isn’t a member of SAL and might be interested in contributing.
Thank you for your support.
