Fitness For Human Habitation Regulations Extended

From the 1st March 2020, the Fitness for Human Habitation Act 2019 (FFHH) is being extended to include the whole of the private rental sector. At present, only tenancies granted after the 20th March 2019 are covered by the regulations.

From March 2020, any Landlord or managing agent acting on their behalf can be sued if homes have Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) or Health and Safety issues. These are categorised as hazards under the Housing Act.

During your regular inspections, should we identify an issue which we believe may impact your compliance with the FFHH Regulations, we will be in contact with you as we look to rectify any problems.
