Follow these steps to search for disabled-friendly, accessible and adapted housing available for sale and rent throughout the UK.

  • If you are searching for a disabled-friendly or accessible home to rent or buy, you will know just how difficult it can be to find one, especially if you are looking for private residential property as opposed to social housing. It is not because there is nothing suitable out there – in fact, there is a wide range of adapted and accessible property on the market at any given time. Instead the difficulty lies in identifying suitable properties.

    Due to the fact that the term 'disabled' is open to many different interpretations, it is not always possible to identify specific requirements. Some people may need full wheelchair access whereas others with more mobility might just be looking for a bathroom that has been adapted to make it more accessible, or simply a property with a dedicated near-by parking space.

    Finding accessible and adapted housing is a necessity for those with a physical disability. Without it, independence is seriously limited. However, it can be difficult to know how to search effectively online for such houses, and so here are some useful steps to help get the process started.

    Follow the links below to view disabled-friendly, accessible and adapted housing available throughout the UK, and then refine your location.

    Unfortunately we are only able to identify disability-friendly homes if the estate agents have included the correct information in the property description. There are likely to be many more suitable properties available on the market, which cannot be easily identified. Therefore it is advisable to register with local agents, as they will be able to identify other disabled-friendly properties available in your area.
