Legionella Risk Assessments
Property Partners is an approved Legionella Risk Assessor, working with letting and estate agents, solicitors and private landlords across the North East of Scotland
Landlords of residential properties are required under Health & Safety Executive (HSE) legislation to carry out risk assessments to check their properties for the Legionella bacteria which causes Legionnaire’s disease. Once in place, best practice recommends that this be reviewed every two years.
Legionnaires’ Disease is a pneumonia like illness which in severe cases can be fatal. It is caused by breathing in small droplets of water contaminated by the bacteria. These bacteria occur in the natural environment and can contaminate “and grow” in water systems, including domestic hot and cold water systems,
