Westminster's Residential Environmental Health team ensures safe and healthy homes for private residents in Westminster.
We can assess your property to determine if any poor housing conditions will have an impact on your health, safety and wellbeing.
The Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) is used to assess a total of 29 hazards within the home that have a negative impact on health.
Hazards are assessed and the highest scoring hazards which have the greatest potential to impact negatively on your health, known as Category 1 hazards.
We have a duty to force landlords to deal with this type of hazard. Ideally, we try to resolve the issue informally, but we will take formal legal action when necessary.
Examples of typical hazards assessed include damp and mould, fire, danger of falling, excess cold and overcrowding.
