Asbestos surveys in London and the South East
Asbestos surveys can only be undertaken by an appropriately trained surveyor who holds a BOHS Proficiency Module P402 qualification.
The purpose of undertaking an asbestos survey is to provide accurate information on the location, amount and condition of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within the property.
Samples of suspected materials will be taken to a UKAS accredited asbestos testing laboratory and should asbestos, of any type, be found the survey will then identify where and what type is present. It will also determine the condition and any subsequent action that needs to be taken.
The type of asbestos survey needed will be dependent on you and your property’s specific requirements.
It is not a legal requirement for domestic properties to have an asbestos survey carried out,. However, the requirements do apply to common parts of premises, including housing developments and blocks of flats, but do not place any direct duties on landlords for individual houses or flats.
Should you plan to have refurbishment works undertaken or part of the property demolished, then it is a requirement to have a refurbishment or demolition survey undertaken before any works commence.
