A UK property website has highlighted the potential in the London housing
market for overseas property developers considering investing in the UK.


The Little House Company which has been promoting accessible homes since 2000 explains that London offers a huge potential for international development
companies considering starting new projects in the UK capital



Director at The
Little House Company Nick Marr “ There are approximately 1.24 million
wheelchair users in London, and a recent report from Trailblazers highlighted
the difficulties that young disabled people face in the UK when trying to
purchase a property. The report found that although 90% said that they are just
as keen to get on to the property ladder as their non-disabled peers, seven out
of ten find it difficult to find accommodation that is accessible to them.
There is also evidence to suggest that 36.5% of disabled people lived in
‘non-decent housing’ compared to 31.4% of non-disabled


 


The latest wheelchair
friendly developments featured at The Little House Company are located in
Bermondsey and Haringey, both developments offer adapted properties suitable for wheelchair
users and demonstrate how new home builders can build with mobility in mind.
