DIY Legionella Risk Assessment Reports for Just £9

cleanshowerLandlords are under a legal duty of care to ensure that the risk of exposure to Legionella for tenants, residents and visitors to their properties is adequately assessed and controlled. Landlords are obligated to have a risk assessment conducted out on their properties followed by subsequent periodic reviews.

Provided that the property is low risk (which includes most residential settings including houses or flats with small domestic type water systems) there is no reason why the landlord should not carry out the risk assessment themselves.

With this in mind Property118 have negotiated an exclusive discount on the normal price of a Legionella Risk Assessment.

Please CLICK HERE and follow the step by step guide and use the form at the bottom of the page to produce your Legionella Risk Assessment for £8.95
