Landlords are legally responsible to ensure that the water in their rental property is safe. As part of this responsibility, it is recommended that a Legionella Risk Assessment is conducted every two years or before the start of a new tenancy. If left untreated, legionella can cause Legionnaires disease and make your tenants seriously ill.
Here’s a more detailed article on the Landlord Legionella Legislation.
Anyone can be appointed to assess/monitor Legionella as long as they have the relevant skills to implement the control measures and strategies i.e. they are suitably informed, instructed, trained and assessed. There must be evidence to show that the risk assessment has taken place, and records showing what precautions were taken.
If you don’t feel comfortable or qualified to do conduct a Legionella Risk Assessment yourself, you can order an assessment online from LettingAProperty.com.
