If you’re thinking of purchasing a property built before 2000, there’s a possibility that it may contain asbestos. This isn’t necessarily a problem, but without proper management asbestos can be dangerous to your health and a drain on your finances. We would always recommend a pre-purchase asbestos survey for peace of mind.
The purpose of a pre-purchase asbestos survey is to locate and identify any asbestos containing materials (ACMs) that might be disturbed in the day-to-day use of the property. All ACM locations are recorded and samples are sent to the lab for analysis. The asbestos survey report is generated detailing the location, extent and condition of any ACMs along with our recommendations. You will receive your survey report by email, typically within two working days of the survey completion.
