Housing Health and Safety Rating System
The Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) is the way of assessing the risk and condition of residential properties. It is a fundamental part of the Decent Homes Standard and an important procedure used to deal with bad conditions in homes.
The system includes 29 categories, grading the severity for each hazard. Any action to remedy the risk will depend on the degree of risk, but actions can vary from no action, to written advice, legal notice or prohibition of occupation.
