Housing issues disabled parent
hi I’m new to this but seeking advice, my dad had a stroke in June and has been left unable to walk assisted. My parents are in rented accommodation which is now not suitable as he cannot get out of their flat which has 3 steps. We have registered fir housing, but yesterday was told they would not qualify as they have sold a house in France , they do not have the money yet and when they do it will be £40k which is above the threshold for housing. We have been searching for suitable accommodation fir months, and not found anything within their budget. My dad is totally fed up now as all they need is a ground floor flat with a walk in shower but if the council will not accommodate who can they go to?
