Your rights to accessible and adaptable housing
We have produced guides for disabled people in England, Scotland and Wales, and the organisations that support them.
These guides set out your rights and responsibilities, information and tips on:
- renting from a private landlord or from a letting agency
- adapting your home
- where to get help
Easy read guides
We have also produced some easy read guides with information for disabled people. Easy read guides are made to be easier to understand.
This information is for disabled people. It is about making changes to your home if you need to because of your disability. When you make changes to your home it is called adapting your home.
This guide is about your rights when you rent a home from a private landlord. This is when you rent a home from the person who owns the home.
This guide is about renting social housing and your rights. Social housing is housing run by councils and housing associations.
