Housing Health and Safety Rating System

The Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS), also known as 'The Rating System', was introduced as a result of the Housing Act (2004).

The underlying principle of the HHSRS is that 'all residential premises should provide a safe and healthy environment for any potential occupier or visitor', and evaluates potential health and safety risks in homes.

Landlords should consider how they should minimise hazards for tenants, such as damp and mould and falls, when living in their properties. For more information on these hazards contact the Healthy and Sustainable Homes Service.
