Legionnaires' Disease. Understanding your responsibilities.
All landlords and letting agents in control of private rented properties are required by law
to protect their tenants against the risk of contracting Legionnaires' Disease.
The Risk
All hot and cold water systems in residential properties are a potential source for Legionella bacteria growth. A properly considered Risk Assessment is what is legally required to identify and assess potential sources of risk.
Avoid Litigation
Although domestic properties do not necessarily require elaborate control measures, it is important that a Risk Assessment is in place for proper consideration.

Taking Care of Uncertainties
Legionnaires' Disease
Legionnaires' Disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia caused by the inhalation of vapour from contaminated water sources that produce aerosols containing the bacteria. In a property the main areas of risk are where the bacteria can multiply and increase to harmful and potentially dangerous levels and then be spread through aerosols, e.g. in vapour and spray created by showers and taps.

As systems become more complex and subject to use, further considerations will apply to fully comply with the law.

Are you at risk?
There will remain uncertainties unless the system is properly assessed and appropriate control measures put in place. Not all systems are basic in design.

Our domestic assessment services include placing fundamental control measures at the time.
