In strictest terms, the HHSRS can be applied to all housing, rented or not. But they will be less interested if there are no tenants involved, or there are no vulnerable people (elderly, disabled, children etc) in occupation unless they think you will relet soon. The risk assessment itself does not mean that you are forced to make repairs. The council would have to issue you with a notice to force you to get any work done. You can appeal against the notice if they do so. It would be best to discuss the assessment with them before that stage.
