Do I need an asbestos survey?

The manufacture and import of asbestos was banned in 1999

Find out when your building was constructed and /or when any significant refurbishments took place.

All non-domestic buildings constructed during and prior to 1999 must be surveyed.

Note: “Non-domestic” includes the common parts of blocks of flats!!

Does it have to be me who arranges / pays for it?
The burden falls on the person who is responsible for the day to day maintenance of the building

In the case of freehold property, this is likely to be the owner, but in the case of leasehold property it might be the Landlord or the Tenant according to the terms of the lease.

What next?

There are 3 types of asbestos survey. Discuss with the surveyor which one to choose
