I have a disability. Is my landlord responsible for making adaptations to the communal areas?

Under the Equality Act 2010 landlords and their agents will soon have a statutory duty to make reasonable adaptations to the communal areas ONLY where a request has been made by the leaseholder. At present, the provisions under the Equality Act 2010 are not yet fully in force. However, some landlords may be amenable to agreeing a private arrangement to make adaptations to the communal area. It is worth noting that the impact on other residents is an important factor to be considered when making these arrangements.
