As part of the NLA membership they have a continued professional development section, they added a Legionella section last week which we have now completed.
There is no onus on the landlord to carry out legionella risk assessments but some unscrupulous agents are interpreting the latest HSE guidelines as a reason why landlords MUST have these done and charging for it, its bunkem there is no law.
In summary what the HSE guidance states is:
Combi boiler systems should also be drained when a property is empty for any length of time and or provision made for the regular running of the water (preferably drained)
A further great tip from 247.
