Need For The Scheme

Today we welcomed the Secretary of State for Transport’s decision to approve our proposed improvements for M2 junction 5 Stockbury Interchange. For more information about a landlord’s duty to make alterations for disabled people, see Discrimination in housing. Generally, a local authority does not have to pay a grant or loan within any particular time limit. However, if your local authority’s own rules set a time limit, it must pay you within this time limit. A local authority can offer different types of help with home improvements.

If you rent your home and apply to your local authority for a disabled facilities grant, you’ll need to get your landlord’s permission before your local authority will agree to help you. However, your landlord must not refuse permission without a very good reason. If you need to make changes to your home because of your disability, your landlord should agree to this unless they have a good reason for not doing so. If your landlord doesn’t agree, this could be disability discrimination and they could be breaking the law.
