Definition of a Landlord?

A landlord is defined as someone who rents out a property (or a room within a property) which they own, under a lease or a licence that is shorter than seven years.

As a Landlord, What Must I Do?

As a landlord, you are responsible and have a legal obligation to have a Legionella risk assessment carried out on properties under your control. Integrated Compliance can carry out landlord Legionella risk assessment on properties across the UK.

A Legionella risk assessment is an in depth survey of the potential risks presented by engineered water systems, and seeks to identify and assess the risks of exposure to Legionella bacteria associated with work activities and water systems. The assessment will determine the likelihood of the risk of exposure to Legionella bacteria within the water system.

FAQ’s

How often should I test water for Legionella?

It depends on the system that you have and the outcome of your risk assessment. For open systems, such as cooling towers, evaporative condensers and spa pools etc, routine testing should be carried out at least quarterly. However, there may be circumstances were more frequent sampling may be required.

For hot and cold water systems, which are generally enclosed, i.e. not open to the elements and significant contamination in the same way as cooling towers, microbiological monitoring is not usually required. But there may be circumstances where testing for legionella is necessary eg where there is doubt about the efficacy of the control regime or where recommended temperatures or disinfection concentrations are not being consistently achieved . Further guidance is available in HSG274 Part 2
