I live in a retirement property. Are we responsible for the cost of making adaptations to the communal areas to assist a disabled person?

Generally, most retirement leases contain provisions allowing the landlord to make adaptations as the mobility requirements of the residents evolve. However, unless the lease specifically states that the costs of such alterations are recoverable from all the residents there is no legal obligation at present for you to contribute towards such costs.
