Any initiative that helps look after a tenant and their wellbeing and at the same time eradicates the shoddy landlord, the Mr Rigby's of the world are surely a good thing? After all it is the Mr Rigby's that give the rest of us a bad name!
The latest Duty of Care
relates to the control of Legionella
in water systems would you believe. It is not a new directive as such but one that appeared more relevant
for block managers than private landlords. The requirement
now is that all Private landlords and agents should be pro-active in preventing
the occurrence and spread of the legionella bacteria!
Take care Mr Landlord. I’m off to Trescobeas Surgery to get my anti-bacterial jabs and then check out my water tank . In the meantime beware of Seagulls and Legionella (probably in that order).
