    Hi and welcome sorry it may not be possible for anyone to answer this as we are all from different locations 

    There are plenty of hotels that cater for disabled 

    Let the housing know your situation

    Hello @rstocker48

    I hope the repairs go smoothly next year.  Although I don't have any personal knowledge of hotels in Cheshire, I'd stress to your housing association what your impairment needs are and emphasise that these will need to be accommodated.  

    Good luck and please let us know how you get on :)

    I must admit, i've never known walls to have to be knocked down to put a damp proof course in? Are you sure they need to do this? If walls need to be knocked down then there would be no need for a damp proof course.

    If you have to move out of your home for this work to be done then have you searched google for hotels in your area? You're the only person that knows the area you live in so you would be the best person to search your local area. I always find google is extremely helpful.
