I live in a property which has a walk in shower but no bath, I wondered if anyone knows if I can request for a bath to be installed? I have 2 children my youngest is 13 months and is getting to big for his baby bath I'm just wondering if its worth asking them. I'm thinking the answer is probably no but would be grateful for anyones thoughts on this.

How about you put your hand in your own pocket and buy one yourself instead of demanding freebies from the government.

arent housing associations non profit making organisations which arent government/council controlled? I thought the idea was that all the money from rental income was ploughed back into household improvements and buying more properties?

Jeez, some people are so judgemental lol

OP, you may have to contribute towards the cost but as it's coming up to the financial year end you could strike a deal if they need to spend money

Housing associations are seperate from the council/government. They are private companies, and they will pay for the bath to be installed.

You can only ask op , although they may say you took the property on knowing that no bath was installed !!

PS- take no notice of the digs you will get from some members (_;)

At which point did she say she was on benefits? If she rents the house, which she probably does from an HA then she wouldn't be allowed to make any changes like that off her own back. I don't think you should just assume she's one of the scroungers, maybe, maybe not, might work hard to pay her rent like a lot of people.

As everyone says just ask.

Not always, some have govt help in order to get their own housing waiting lists down

Thank you for all the constructive comments, I will ask and see what they say I guess they can only say no and I won't be any worse off. I just wondered what people thought on my chances I actually didnt expect so many replies so thank you.
Oh and for the record I actually have a job and so does my other half and if they will install a bath I would be more than happy to pay towards it.

I live in a council house but my partner works full time as an engineer and we pay full rent and council tax. Just because people live in a council house/housing association doesn't mean they're scroungers. It's usually because they can't afford to buy a house of their own!

well said, I was surprised on all the negative comments basically calling me a benefit scrounger its laughable how small minded people really are! I have to say though some of the comments have made me laugh out loud my son asked me what I was laughing at!

Totally agree - my first ever place of my own was a housing association flat at the grand age of 20. I had both a full time job and part time bar work so that I could support myself. I paid full rent and everything else myself. Only discount I got was the 25% discount in council tax for being a single person at the time.

Ignore some of the idiotic comments on here OP - some people can be so ignorant. No harm in asking about a bath - good luck!

My Mums the opposite to you, she has a very short, low bath which she can't even lay down in....she's tall ( 5 ' 8 ) and has arthritus, so she's put in a request for a shower!

What annoys me is that people make rude comments, and then when they find they're in the wrong, they go quiet. Why not just apologise?!

Do you really expect someone so judgemental and ill-informed to be any different?

Shall we move on from the comment which was made in the minority. It doesn't need dwelling on.

OP - just telephone them and ask. If it is a reasonable request I am sure that they would consider it.

It was just one person. Resorting to calling someone a retard is on par with their ill-informed comment.

Not bad going really though judging by the responses you'd think it was a full scale misc mauling.

I have lived in my ha house for 4 years and last year i asked them if they would plaster the walls (they were in a bad way), someone came out assessed it and i now have lovely smooth walls. I think if its in the best interest of the property and your good with your rent they should do it.
ps, if at first they say no try again sometimes they need a little nudge.

They keep fobbing her off all the time...I don't mind though as I exchange babysitting duties for showers at my house!!
