Landlord risk assessments

Ensuring safe water supplies for your homes

Simple legionella testing for landlords in the UK


Chiltern Water & Environment provides simple, tailored legionella testing risk assessments for residential landlords and small commercial enterprises. Based in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire but serving clients throughout the UK, we offer a range of services carried out by our experienced and competent surveyors. Our Aylesbury office covers London and the South of England, while our Derby office covers the Midlands area. 

Ideal for landlords across the UK

Since 1991, Chiltern Water & Environment has been carrying out legionella risk assessments on a wide variety of different water systems. For larger water systems, we provide full legionella risk assessments compliant with BS8580. 

However, with the growing demand for legionella testing for residential supplies, we have developed a new simple risk assessment as per ACoP L8 and HSG274 guidance. This assessment will determine whether a residential or small commercial water system is compliant with the requirements in paragraph 25 of ACoP L8, which describes low risk systems. The risk assessment is completed on-site by one of our trained, knowledgeable surveyors. 

If issues are identified, then we can take water samples to determine if legionella is present, (as per BS7592 requirements). On an average, 1-5% of all domestic water systems in the UK have legionella present.  A report is completed by hand on-site which can be left with you or posted. If treatment is required after the legionella testing, Chiltern Water & Environment will offer recommendations on the best course of action to take.
