Aids and adaptations policy

Use of Adapted Property

12.1 It is expected that once major adaptations have been completed the tenant continues to live in the property unless circumstances do not allow for this (such as a worsening medical condition).

12.2 Where substantial works have been carried out to the property and the person requiring the adaptions dies or is unable to remain at the property and moves elsewhere, the remaining members of the household may be asked to move to alternative accommodation.

12.3 If a customer applies for re-housing or a mutual exchange, unless their circumstances have changed they will normally be classed as adequately housed and therefore will not qualify to join the housing needs register.
