What our visitors say

Property and holiday accommodation with wheelchair access

The Accessible Property Register offers social housing providers and managers a comprehensive package ensuring identification, recording, and promotion of accessible and adapted property.

APR services enhance choice and independence for older and disabled people and working with APR will significantly improve compliance with Disability Discrimination Act and delivery of the Disability Equality Duty. Our system of advertising increases tenant choice as available property from the private sector is advertised alongside social housing.

Adverts include:

  • Thumbnail
  • Property details (property type, location, price)
  • Checklist of access features and adaptations (unique to APR)
  • Full online access survey if required
  • Up to four photographs per advert
  • Full details of property including property description
  • Link to property details on your own website.
  • Variable display periods - for choice-based lettings, adverts can be automatically withdrawn after seven days.
  • Agency contact details including agency name, postal address, telephone number, and contact e-mail address

Cost:

Annual subscription

One-year subscription with unlimited advertising based on the number of properties under management. Starts at £25 for the smallest organisations.

Individual adverts

APR is pleased to accept individual adverts for qualifying properties or developments. Individual adverts are priced at £25.

Officers or members interested in discussing options in more detail should contact Conrad Hodgkinson directly by e-mail or telephone 0774 9119385.

Example

Sheffield Homes, an independent housing trust managing 50,000 ex-Sheffield Council properties began working with APR early in 2006. All vacant properties are now inspected for access and between 10 and 20 accessible properties are identified each week. Properties are advertised on the Accessible Property Register website and in print media and can be compared with available property from the private sector.

Within six weeks of the system going live, the number of disabled and older tenants requiring individual support to find suitable properties fell by 40% and this level has been maintained.
