Your Legal Responsibilities
As a landlord in Bournemouth, Poole, or Dorset, you have a duty of care to help assess and prevent the risk of exposure – with our Legionella Risk Assessment for landlords in Bournemouth and the local area, you can ensure you are adhering to the law.
You should consider any risks of Legionella in your properties that could impact members of the public, employees, or tenants, and then take the right precautions.
What Landlords Need to Do
As the person or company responsible for premises, you should assess which water systems in the property might be at risk of leading to Legionnaires Disease. You can conduct this risk assessment yourselves, or preferably ask an external contractor such as Dorset Plumbing to do this for you.
It doesn’t take us long to conduct the risk assessment, and at just £35 +VAT it’s an easy decision to make which could reduce the chances of your tenants contracting a fatal disease.
If you choose not to adhere to UK legislation then it could result in very serious consequences. You are legally obliged to ensure your properties are not at risk, with significant fines, prosecution and imprisonment potentially being imposed.
