Agent informs me that assessment is required every 12 months or each time a tenancy is changed, whichever is the sooner. A certificate must be obtained. Agent informs me that this is a “requirement” even though it is not yet a legal requirement. Agent cannot provide link or paperwork to show where this specific requirement is stipulated in law or local authority documents. The properties do not have water tanks for drinking water, they have combination boilers for hot water. I have pointed out to the agents as the tenants are students then the highest risk would come from the non moving water in the whole pipe work due to taps possibly not having been run for several months, in which case they should make sure the tenants are advised to run all taps and shower for 10 minutes on arriving at their house after a long period of absence. Any comments or advice appreciated.
