How familiar with Legionnaires Disease are you?
With any luck, you’re 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.
As one of Lincoln’s leading independent estate agents, it would be rather foolish if we did not have at least one talented individual qualified to assess the risk of Legionnaire’s in our properties. Big congratulations please for our very own David who recently passed his Legionnaire’s Risk Assessment course!
