Asbestos is a material used widely in the past in buildings and domestic appliances.

It is perfectly safe as long as it is in good condition and has not been damaged.

But it can pose risks to health if it is damaged or deteriorating.

It is possible your home may contain asbestos if it is more than 20 years old. Very few homes built since the year 2000 contain asbestos.

We are continously maintaining or removing asbestos as part of refurbishment projects. Any work of this kind is done by specialist contractors.

If you are worried about asbestos

Contact us if you find any asbestos in your home or intend to carry out DIY work and are concerned about asbestos.

Do not try to deal yourself with any damaged or deteriorating asbestos.

If you are a leaseholder, you should have received any details about your home that appear on our asbestos register when you bought the property. If you are unsure or need advice, please contact us.

All our contractors have been given asbestos awareness training and have access to asbestos records, allowing them to work safely in your home.

Asbestos is sometimes found in insulation panels (ceiling tiles, wall panels and boiler cupboards) and asbestos-cement products, such as bath panels, flue pipes, cold-water tanks.
