If a building was built before the year 2000, then it is likely to contain asbestos. The ‘duty to manage’ applies to all non-domestic properties including commercial, industrial, educational, hospitality, attractions & the communal areas of flats etc. If you own a building, maintain or repair, or are responsible through a contract or tenancy agreement then you have a legal duty under The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 to manage asbestos and protect yourself and others from asbestos exposure. We can carry out an Asbestos Management Survey and Asbestos Management Plan to help you maintain legal, health and safety compliance.

Are you buying a house and are concerned about asbestos being present? Homebuyer’s report or structural surveyor highlighted potential asbestos issues? General building/ homebuyer’s surveyors are great at what they do, but they are not looking for, and are not necessarily specifically trained/qualified to identify asbestos containing materials. Having an asbestos survey conducted pre-purchase is the best way to highlight potential issues so you can purchase with knowledge of asbestos and it’s possible implications. We produce a full Asbestos Management Survey Report detailing what asbestos is present or presumed, an asbestos register, photos, marked plans and recommendations on future management of the materials. This type of survey is to ensure that you are not exposed to asbestos in your day to day life in the buildings.

Are you concerned that a particular material may contain asbestos? SLR can send a surveyor to your property to collect a sample for asbestos analysis & offer free impartial ongoing advice.

If you are going beyond the ‘day to day life’ in a building by carrying out repair, refurbishment, maintenance or demolition, you may need an Asbestos Refurbishment or Pre-demolition Survey to inspect areas prior to commencing works. This can be from a simple cable installation to an extensive house, office or factory refurbishment. SLR are specialists in carrying out intrusive surveys to identify asbestos hidden beyond the surface.

Removal of corrugated concrete/asbestos garage roof

“When buying a house our building survey advised some potential areas for asbestos worth getting checked further. When I called and explained the risk areas, the person talked me through the different options, a) just testing the specific area or b) a full survey - each option was explained clearly to me to make my own decision. Once we had decided on the full survey this was completed a couple of days later with the report following within a week - I wouldn't hesitate to use SLR again or to recommend them.”
