How familiar with Legionnaires' Disease are you?
With any luck, your exposure to this insidious disease will be limited to knowledge rather than first-hand experience. If you are unaware of the disease, then we suggest you take a short moment to give this video a watch, as new legislation has come into play which requires landlords to have ample knowledge.
If you are a landlord of a residential property, it is your responsibility to ensure that the risk of contamination is minimised, either by inhalation or direct consumption. While Legionnaires' is not contagious, a damp area affected by the disease can cause serious damage to inhabitants in the immediate area.
If you would like to learn about what you can do to secure your property against such threats, we also recommend giving this Health and Safety Executive document a read.
At King & Co both David and Becky are qualified and accredited to undertake a Legionnaires' Risk Assessment on your rental property. Contact us to find out more.
