It is a very exciting time when you are going through the process of buying a new house. However, there are always plenty of stresses and challenges that have to be faced, and if you have received the information from the general study and see that there is asbestos present should you take out a full asbestos survey?

At Artisan Environmental we understand how important it is to understand the dangers of asbestos, and if you are buying a house, first think about this important question.

When was the house built?

If the property was built before the complete ban on asbestos in the UK in 1999 there is a good chance that there is asbestos present somewhere in the property. The seller has a legal obligation to make you aware of this (if they are themselves aware) and it gives you a chance to deal with the situation accordingly.

Our team of asbestos surveyors understands the risks attached to asbestos, and we will undertake a full and thorough analysis of the location and condition of all asbestos on the property. If it requires removal we can conduct a safe asbestos removal service that makes the property as safe as it can be prior to you moving in to your new home.
