Of course there are exceptions and in some cases private landlords CAN agree but it is rare in all honesty.
When Euan was diagnosed we knew the property we were in would not be suitable long term nor stable and we ran the risk of moving when he became less stable and thats something we couldnt risk.
Imagine moving house when your child is in kidney failure or when they were having a transplant that wouldnt have been good.
The space also wasnt enough for machinery he had and will need over time and therefore we went onto the council housing register on medical needs and we were granted a council property it wasnt easy and relied on loop holes and law which luckily i knew and we were able to secure a property suitable for his needs.

In all honesty if the private rent is not suitable there is a strong chance for a similar council house need for yourself and therefore would you be prepared to apply for a council house?

i would love to be in a council house if i am honest as it is lke some ssort of security , i have applied for council housong before i had jaimee and have never got no where i always thought it was more ifyour face fitted , i am only on bronze on the housing list so i just dont think its realistic that i would get a council property ? i dont know i just want to kno where i stand and what i should do for the best ??

you need to go to the council and get a form to apply for a council house on medical grounds, this should make you more of a priority. the other advantage of council over private is they are usually cheaper to rent Big Grin
There comes a point in your life when you realize:Who matters,Who never did,Who won't anymore...And who always will..
So, don't worry about people from your past,there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

If you are saying that you have needs for adaptions then you have medical needs to state that your current property is not fit for your needs and by staying in the property would hinder your childs health and development.
Have you not done a medical needs application previously then?
