Landlords in Brighton are being urged by the Health and Safety Executive to check the water supply of their properties in order to help minimise the risk of spreading Legionnaires disease.

Check your Landlords Insurance Policy covers all risks

The disease is spread through the Legionella bacteria which is commonly found in artificial water systems but may also be present in stagnant or pooled water such as the water found in taps and washing machine pipes.

New regulations mean that landlords and letting agents need to keep a detailed check on their properties. They should assess the risks that are associated with the water supply to their properties before taking steps to prevent the risk of the bacteria forming. Notes and details of the action taken and test results should also be maintained.
