Second Elements’ services for student landlords specifically cater for property that is likely to be part occupied. Part occupied properties may have an increased risk of Legionella as it is important to not allow water to stagnate within the water system.
Dwellings that are vacant for extended periods such as the summer break should have a carefully managed Legionella regime. It is especially important to review the assessment periodically in case anything changes in the system. However, the frequency of inspection and maintenance will depend on individual systems and the risks of Legionella it presents.
Second Element have specific experience of assessing and control Legionella risk with part occupied properties.
