Where there is a potential for legionella risk, there is an absolute need to manage and mitigate this risk and according to the HSE
“if you are an employer, or someone in control of premises, including landlords you need to be aware of the risks that legionella poses.”

LANDLORD RISK ASSESSMENT
Landlords in the private renting sector have a duty of care under the Health & Safety at Work Act and Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations to ensure that the risk posed by legionella is formally recorded in a legionella risk assessment and measures to control any identified risk are duly carried out.
