Asbestos

Asbestos

Asbestos was widely used in constructing buildings before 1999, but today it is illegal to use asbestos in any form. It is perfectly safe if left undisturbed.

We have to know which of our properties contain asbestos, so if your home was built before 1999, we may need to survey it to check whether asbestos is present.

If our contractor, Armstrong York, contacts you, please allow them in to survey your home. If they find asbestos, they will tell you about any risks and send a report to Inquilab. This will either advise us to remove the asbestos or to leave it alone, in which case we will check its condition every year.

If you are concerned that you may have asbestos in your home, please contact us for advice. We may arrange for a survey to be carried out.
