Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS)
Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) is the method used by local authorities to assess housing conditions. The Housing Act 2004 Part 1 establishes the HHSRS as the current statutory assessment criterion for housing and it is based on the principle that any residential premises should provide a safe and healthy environment for any potential occupier or visitor. The system applies to all dwellings including owner occupied, privately rented and Council and Housing Association dwellings.
Local authorities are required to keep housing conditions in privately owned property under review and also have a duty to inspect a property where they have reason to believe that this is appropriate to determine the presence of health and safety hazards. The HHSRS is a system to assess the likely risk of harm that could occur from any ‘deficiency’ associated with a dwelling.
