The Provincial High Court of Barcelona has concluded that the obligation to offer “social rent”, as established in the decree-law of urgent measures for access to housing, cannot be a requirement for admitting a legal claim for eviction due to non-payment of the rent, according to reports from La Vanguardia.

That was the decision taken on Friday by the presidents of the civil sections at a meeting to unify criteria on one of the points of the legislation that was approved by the Catalan Parliament on 5 February. The law has been questioned by the Consell de Garanties Estatutàries, which considers that one of its articles, the one that refers to evictions, is unconstitutional.
