Legionella is a bacterium common in water systems which can result in Legionnaires’ disease. Once again, the landlord or agent of a block of flats has a duty to control the risks of Legionella in any pipes, tanks and taps in common parts (including a cleaner’s cupboard). Cold water tanks, taps and showers within lessees’ flats are the responsibility of the lessees, unless the lease puts repairing responsibility for them on the landlord.

The starting point is a risk assessment, usually carried out by an expert, and if there are risks identified then a written action plan should be produced to reduce the risks.

An annual review of the risk assessment should be made.
