The London Accessible Housing Register

The London Accessible Housing Register (LAHR) supports disabled homeseekers by providing information on accessible social housing in the capital. This helps landlords to collect, display and store information on their accessible housing stock. Landlords seeking to implement the LAHR should consult the good practice guide and training resources listed below. We do not have any current plans to further develop the LAHR, and any queries regarding its implementation should be directed to the relevant landlords.

How it helps

There is a shortage of accessible housing in the capital to meet the needs of disabled Londoners, while some accessible and adapted homes are let to people who do not need them.

With knowledge of their accessible housing stock, landlords can better ensure accessible housing is available to those who need it. 

Who benefits from the LAHR?

The LAHR enables disabled homeseekers to make informed choices about their housing, and more accurately identify properties that would meet their access needs.

An accessible home environment promotes independence and can reduce the care and support needs of people moving from less accessible accommodation.

Social housing landlords also benefit by making the best use of their accessible housing. The LAHR helps them meet disability equality duties and improve customer satisfaction.

Good practice guide

A good practice guide published in 2011 provides social landlords with practical advice on implementing the LAHR.

LAHR training

The LAHR training manual is available to help social housing landlords to implement the LAHR accurately and effectively. 

Access information can be collected using the property survey form.
