Under current legislation you are required by law to have an asbestos register / management plan in place for any non-domestic property that was built prior to 1999.
- Closure of the premises
- Personal fines of up to £20,000 per property
- Disqualification from Directorship
- A custodial sentence
These might sound extreme but asbestos is potentially a very dangerous substance - currently in the UK, 4000 people die each year as a result of exposure to asbestos.
Many insurance companies now demand an asbestos management plan as a renewal requirement.
The solution is simple - an asbestos survey from AJW. Our survey reports are very comprehensive, easy to understand and are complete with digital photographs.
Asbestos registers are not optional. Without one, you could face legal action or worse.
At present there is no legal requirement to have an asbestos register, however when buying or selling a house, or even considering renovation or DIY tasks, you should be aware of the potential harmful risks posed by any Asbestos-Containing materials that may be present.
If you are a buyer or seller, the presence of Asbestos-Containing materials has the potential to substantially adversely affect the value of the property. A simple sample or full blown survey can be a powerful negotiating tool.
