Poor housing is linked to poor health and reduces people’s life chances."

Fitness for Habitation and HHSRS Awareness Course For Landlords (Classroom based course)

Training for Landlords and Agents

The Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) was developed as a component of the Housing Act 2004 to replace the Fitness Standard. It has been in force since 2006 but has been given more bite due to the introduction of the Housing (Fitness for Habitation) Act 2018.

Who should attend?

All Landlords and agents who actively let out properties in England. The course will help landlords and agents come to terms with the practical application and implications of the Housing (Fitness for Habitation) Act 2018 and the HHSRS. By the end of this course, participants will understand the principles behind the Housing Health and Safety Rating System and will understand how to identify the common deficiencies and defects within their rental properties.
