Housing in Leeds

Geo08Geo08 Member Posts: 49 Courageous
I'm going to have to move to Leeds next year but I am having difficulty finding anywhere accessible to live. 

Does anyone have any suggestions for finding somewhere wheelchair accessible ro live for a year or so?

    Hi @Geo08,

    Sorry for the delay in responding to your question.

    Have you had any success in finding accessible housing since you posted?

    If you need to find a property which is accessible but you only need somewhere for the short term you may find that privately renting is the best way forward. It can be very difficult to find accessible properties but there is a website you can use to help. The Accessible Property Register lists accessible properties available to buy or rent so it's worth checking and keeping an eye on in the coming months.
    http://accessible-property.org.uk/start.htm

    You could also try www.habinteg.org.uk who provide accessible housing but it's probably not the right option if you only need the housing for a year or so. This sort of housing would probably be more permanent.

    You could also contact some letting agents in the Leeds area and register with them. If you outline your requirements they will be able to contact you if something suitable comes on the market.

    Aside from that I think it's just going to be a case of searching lots of websites and classified ads.

    I hope that helps and good luck with the house hunting.

    Best wishes
    Debbie
