If you are buying or selling a property in Torquay or if you have responsibility for the maintenance of a property then you may require an asbestos report. Since the introduction of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2002 there has been a legal requirement to manage the risk from asbestos in all non-domestic premises. This requirement extends to any communal areas of flats.
An asbestos survey reports on the location, type, nature of and extent of any asbestos. In line with HSE guidance, there are two types of asbestos survey: the Asbestos Management Survey and the Asbestos Refurbishment and Demolition Survey. The Asbestos Management Survey is based on allowing the safe occupation of the premises and is a legal requirement for all non-domestic premises and is often recommended by surveyors prior to a house purchase.
The Asbestos Refurbishment and demolition Survey has to be completed before any refurbishment or demolition work can be carried out on a property.
On completion of the survey, a full asbestos survey report will be produced which will allow the property owner or duty holder to create a Management Plan to comply with all the latest asbestos regulations.
