TLC is always working on the portfolio ensuring that all TLC managed homes comply with the many laws governing rented properties. Legionella Risk Assessments are the current project. Just another thing for Landlords to do! Thank goodness we were already well ahead on the Smoke and CO alarms requirements that came in on 1st October!.
Why we need to carry out a Legionella Risk Assessment (LRA)
Your Landlord rents a property to you as part of a commercial activity and there are laws in place to ensure that it is a safe environment for you to occupy and that your health and well-being is protected.
The Laws, Guidance and Approved Code of Practice (L8) concerning Legionella are issued by the Health and Safety Executive and more information can be found on their website click here
Whilst this is a low-risk issue TLC and your Landlord take their responsibilities seriously and are going through this process to protect you as part of the normal compliance with statutory requirements.
