If you own a commercial property, you’re looking to buy one or you’re a tenant or managing agent of one, you may be responsible for managing any asbestos on the property. Without an asbestos survey you won’t know if there is asbestos in the property and therefore if you are responsible for managing it or not.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 sets out the responsibilities of managing asbestos in any property that is in a non-domestic property or premises.
Asbestos was finally banned in the UK in late 1999, asbestos was used in buildings for around 200 years before that and therefore there is a high chance that if you are looking to buy an older property, there will be asbestos present.
