Although strictly speaking not relevant to this forum I would appreciate your advice on the following:

My son and his very young family are moving into a house next week that requires a lot of renovation which they plan to do next year after the plans have been approved.

The [property has been vacant for nearly 2 years because the owner went into a nursing home.


There is a cold water tank in the attic and an immersion heater in the property also and although the water was turned off the estate agents says that he is not sure if the system was drained I worry about nasty bacteria lurking in the tank.

Given the property has been vacant for so long is there anything that should be done to ensure that the water coming through the tank is safe?
