Are you asking whether you can compel the landlord to build these 2 ramps and if so, are you suggesting that he should pay for them?

I am sorry, I think something’s gone wrong with the reply to my answer because your response to my question doesn’t make sense.

Let me answer you in general terms. A Landlord is under duty to make reasonable adjustments to a property to cater for people who are disabled.

However, what is reasonable is what is reasonable in the circumstances and constructing a concrete ramp to take a wheelchair for example if this is a Assured Short hold Tenancy be deemed to be more than reasonable.

Even with regard to matters like grab rails, the landlord can be made to make those alterations as you will read here.

https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/housing/discrimination-in-housing/what-are-the-different-types-of-discrimination-in-housing/discrimination-in-housing-duty-to-make-reasonable-adjustments/

The problem for you is that if you have a Assured Short hold Tenancy, the landlord can simply give you a section 21 notice to quit and hence, whilst you can compel the landlord to make reasonable adaptations and alterations, it would be short lived victory.

I’m sorry, I wish I could give you a more favourable answer

Can I clarify anything for you? Please rate the service positive so that I get paid. We can still exchange emails. Best wishes. FES.
