What is the Housing Health and Safety Rating System?

The Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) replaced the former “fitness for human habitation” standard, as the new minimum standard for housing of multiple occupation.

The HHSRS is concerned with removing potential hazards in any building and it imposes duties on Local Authorities to take action in the most serious cases.

The Government has produced detailed guidance for both landlords and property managers to help them assess and eliminate the risks of such hazards.
