Training for Partners

Agents, add value to your landlords and tenants by accrediting your properties as a PAL partner

HHSRS (Housing Health & Safety Rating System) Training – 2 Day Course

On Thursday 26th September and Thursday 24th October PAL will be running a 2 Day HHSRS training course for letting agents in the borough.

The aim of this HHSRS training is to provide those who carry out inspections and surveys of residential accommodation with the knowledge and competence to rate those hazards appropriately. 

After completing the course Delegates will understand the HHSRS responsibilities of landlord and letting agent, and know the factors that tip the balance and the implications of the rating. The practical workshops are based on day to day scenarios in real life properties and aimed at giving a thorough, practical knowledge of a complex and potentially expensive subject impacting on tenant safety and deposit disputes.

In order to successfully complete the course and gain a certificate of competence, delegates are required to attend both days. Content is spread across the two days with a practical assessment to be completed in between them. Course content includes:

•             Principles behind the new system

•             The 29 Hazards

•             Property surveys and the survey form

•             Identifying deficiencies and understanding risk

•             Harm outcomes

•             The hazard assessment and a model

•             Decent Homes Standard

•             Enforcement using the HHSRS

Day 1 and Day 2 of the course will be held at Welwyn Hatfield Council Offices and will run from 10am to 4pm. 

Below are the prices for the 2 days:

PAL Partners – £225.00

Non-PAL Partners – £325.00
