Mobility scooter

I think in my opinion I am being discriminated against for having the aforementioned.

I live in what my landlord calls now supported living, I have been informed by my landlord that this has to be insured for being in a room solely for scooters.

I have been in my current apartment since 2015.

The landlord is quoting from their Mobility Scooter Policy, I hasten to say, since I have been in I have never been made aware or even seen this policy.

The first I knew about the said policy, was when it was quoted in a level 1 complaint reply dated 20/9/22.

I have escalated this to a level 2 complaint, but I don’t hold out for any different conclusion.

The landlord does not allow the storage of the aforementioned in one’s own apartment.

Even the government rules say that there is no legislation for a mobility scooter to have insurance, as it is classed as a mobility aid.

Is there anything I can do.
