We undertake 2 different types of asbestos survey nationwide as directed by UK legislation.
• Management Asbestos Surveys (Previously known as a Type 2 survey)
• Refurbishment and Demolition Asbestos Surveys (Previously known as a Type 3 survey)
Are for businesses, leaseholders or freeholders occupying and purchasing property.
This type of report forms the requirements under Regulation 4 of the Control Of Asbestos
Regulations 2012 “Duty to Management” which places an onus of responsibility of those
who manage property to have an understanding of what asbestos containing materials
(ACM’s) are present within the property so as these can be managed safely. This type
of inspection can also be required when you are handling back your lease or disposing
of the property where an asbestos survey report is not already in place. Solicitors
will frequently request this information during the course of the process. This type
of report is now commonly produced for prospective purchases of residential property
in order to give the new owner a better understanding of what ACM’s are present and
any considerations which may be needed.
Refurbishment and Demolition Surveys
Are a legal requirement for individuals and organisations involved in demolition,
renovation & refurbishment. Whether the property in question is a garage or a hospital
the requirement is the same and this type of intrusive inspection will attempt as
far as reasonably practicable to locate where ACM’s have been used in the construction
of the property particularly in difficult to reach places such as the structure or
fabric of the building.
We also undertake inspections of public sector buildings such as schools, colleges,
hospitals & government agency buildings.
Reports will always contain a number of key pieces of information such as the material
assessment risk rating for each individual occurrence and recommendations on materials
found including photographs and highlighted floors (where applicable).
If you have several properties or a portfolio which you manage or own and require
asbestos survey inspections you may wish to contact us by phone, email or post and
include some details as to the location and type of property in question. Asbestos
inspections are much like building or structural surveys but with the onus being
on asbestos materials rather than dilapidation or structural defects.
If you are unsure as to which asbestos survey type you require please contact us
and one of our surveyors will be happy to discuss your requirements.
