Self completed Legionella Risk Assessments for £8.95

house of commonsOn October 1st 2015 the House of Commons issued a briefing paper to clarify the legal requirements for landlords with regards to Legionella Risk Assessments.

This gives specific clarification that all landlords operating rental properties must undertake a Legionella risk assessment on each rental property they own. To see full note click here

Whilst many landlords understandably do not agree with this regulation the fact remains it is legally required.

Many landlords have reported fees of up to £125 being charged for an outside contractor to do the assessment whilst the Health and Safety Executive have made it clear that:

“Provided that the property is low risk (which includes most residential settings including houses or flats with small domestic type water systems where the water turnover is high) there is no reason why the landlord should not carry out the risk assessment themselves, provided that they are adequately knowledgeable about the water system in the property”.

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

Legionella Risk Assessment

The step by step guide provided at The LRA Register provides enough information to enable a landlord comply with the requirement in a few easy steps.

Whilst there are other templates available we feel that The LRA Register provides a good solution at a low cost and is worthy of consideration.

The system lodges the report on a central register with the date and time stamp of when the report was done and when it was lodged clearly recorded. If there is any issue later on it can be proven when the report was lodged.

Legionella Risk Assessment

The purpose of a Legionella risk assessment for your rental properties is to ensure that you have taken sufficient note of the possibility of Legionella in your water system and to give practical advice to your tenants, which will be contained in our prepopulated risk assessment template.

If a tenant were to become ill with Legionella and a risk assessment has not been carried out the Health and Safety Executive would take legal action against the landlord or agent.
