Housing, health and safety rating system

The Housing, Health and Safety Rating System is the national standard for inspecting houses. During a housing inspection, an officer will look for 29 different hazards. These include: damp and mould growth, electrical safety and fire safety.

See renting out your property on GOV.UK for details of landlords responsibilities.


If the property is in a bad state of repair we can take action to improve the property.
