Why choose Hodge Jones & Allen?
Depending on your case it’s possible to achieve:
A reasonable adjustment
For example, we’ve represented a tenant who was deaf and her son who was blind. We sought for there to be two different types of doorbells fitted– one audio and one visual to make it easier for them to live in the property.
The adjustment must be reasonable. You couldn’t ask your landlord to start making structural changes to a property, for example widening doorways for a wheelchair, but it would be reasonable to ask for a non-fixed ramp to a front door to allow wheelchair access.
Changes to a policy or practice that will stop the problem happening again, or happening to someone else
For example, we could obtain changes to a local authority’s housing allocation scheme to make it fairer, not only for you but for other people who face the same challenges that you do.
Many of our clients simply want the discrimination to be acknowledged and to receive an apology.
For the discrimination to stop
This is going to be a priority if the discrimination is ongoing.
Compensation could be available if you’ve been distressed, upset or have lost money as a result of the discrimination.
