17. Adapted properties

Under our current secure tenancy agreement, if a tenant is living in a property which has been built or adapted for a person with a disability, and the tenant or their family no longer need that type of home, we may take steps through the courts to end the tenancy.

We will try as far as possible to offer the tenant and/or their family members other suitable accommodation.

For tenants on a flexible tenancy living in a property which has been built or adapted for a person with a disability, we will only renew the tenancy if there is still a requirement within the family group for that kind of property, and where none of the other conditions around renewing flexible tenancies apply.
