No Letting Go’s Legionella Reporting Services

Easing the Demands of Meeting Compliance for Landlords, Letting Agents and Property Manager

You are probably aware that the scope of the Health & Safety At Work act regarding legionella extends to residential rental properties so you will need to be able to demonstrate compliance.

What does this mean for landlords and lettings agents?

It’s recommended that a legionella risk assessment is carried out every two years to meet the legal duty in ensuring that the risk of exposure of tenants to legionella is properly assessed and controlled.

What do I need to do?

In addition to a risk assessment you must implement preventative and control measures, eliminate risks, keep records, and review regularly.

To ease the burden of compliance No Letting Go is offering a Legionella Reporting Service to those with the responsibility of owning or managing residential rental properties.

Saving you time and money

Outsourcing this activity offers landlords and lettings agents an efficient and cost-effective way of demonstrating compliance without needing to become conversant in the intricacies of meeting those requirements; saving valuable time and ensuring you are completely absolved of any liability.

Outsourcing risk assessments to an established provider of rental property services is an efficient and cost-effective solution both in terms of cost and resources.

So what is Legionella?

Legionella is a bacteria naturally found in both hot and cold water systems. Whilst the bacteria at low levels do not pose a health risk, under certain conditions, in water storage tanks for example, and in certain temperature ranges, the bacteria can multiply increasing the risk of Legionnaire’s Disease. Risk increases in water systems that are unused for any period of time; making rental properties particularly vulnerable. Legionnaire’s is a potentially fatal disease with flu-like symptoms often mistaken for pneumonia contracted by inhaling bacteria contained in water droplets.

How we can help

No Letting Go is able to provide full checks of the entire water system in residential property including water tanks in lofts, pipes, taps, toilet and shower systems. The risk assessment will indicate whether any action is required on the part of the landlord and if not is a record demonstrating compliance in protecting tenants.
