Case #87 Housing rights for a person with disabilities

Vulnerable group: people with disabilities

Human rights area: housing rights, social rights, disability

The case concerns a gentleman from Brașov with a physical disability who, between 2011 and 2018, filed several requests to local authorities in order to have access to social housing, which he finally received in 2018. However, the building was in a very poor condition, allegedly uninhabitable, so the gentleman currently lives with his parents on the 3rd floor of a building without an elevator. He moves around with the help of his mother, as his father suffers from mental health problems.

In 2021, he decided to file a lawsuit against the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Labor and Social Protection and the Brașov City Hall for the trauma created during all this time and for the indifference with which his case was treated.

The case was taken over by Att. Aura Iovan (Bucharest Bar), who provides remote legal assistance to the applicant in order to support him in his efforts.


Legal assistance in this matter has been made possible through the project INTEGRIS: Integrated Support for Human Rights, implemented by Equality and Human Rights Action Centre (ACTEDO), in partnership with The Centre for Legal Resources (CRJ), with the financial support of the Active Citizens Fund Romania, programme funded by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Grants 2014-2021.
