The Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities have been consulting on proposals that would require landlords to make reasonable adjustments to the common parts of let residential premises when requested by a disabled person.
Currently there is no legal duty on landlords to make reasonable adjustments to common parts. The new proposals will effectively give disabled residents the legal right to require landlords to make reasonable adjustments to the common parts of their flats.
In our response we welcome moves to improve disabled people’s access to let residential premises and would appreciate any opportunity to work with the government to ensure these important changes meet the best needs of housing associations and their residents.
The consultation closed on 18 August. If you’d like any further information on the proposals or our response, please get in touch.
