Legionella Risk Assessments


Published: 24/08/2021

Over the next few months we will be carrying out Legionella risk assessments on our properties.  Legionella is the name given to a bacteria that can sometimes be present in water systems, and can cause chest infections. While we test all our empty homes for Legionella and provide an information leaflet on how to ensure your home is safe, we’re now required to take a more active role in making sure tenants are protected.

These risk assessments are quite straightforward, and when you are contacted about the assessment, it is very important that you allow access to your home.
