If you're looking to buy property in Hampshire, then you must be aware of the possible presence of asbestos in buildings. It is absolutely vital that you carry out an asbestos survey before making any purchase, as the material can be a significant health risk when not appropriately managed. However, this has become a common requirement when buying properties in Hampshire, and Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire is the leading company that can help you with it.
Asbestos is a hazardous substance that was generally used in construction materials to add strength, durability, and fire resistance. It was widely used in homes and commercial properties until the 1980s when the UK government banned it. However, many older properties still contain asbestos, and it remains a concern for homeowners and buyers in Hampshire.
The presence of asbestos is concerning as it can cause various cancers such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis. These are life-threatening conditions that can take a long time to develop, often decades after exposure, and survival chances are low. The only way to detect and manage its presence in buildings is through an asbestos survey.
Asbestos was widely used in different parts of properties, including:
It is common to find asbestos in older properties that have not been subject to any improvements, renovations or replacements for long periods. The responsibility for removing or managing any present asbestos falls on the owner of the property.
An asbestos survey should be carried out by a qualified and experienced consultant, who is well-versed in dealing with asbestos issues in properties. A survey will check for the presence or absence of asbestos, identify the type of asbestos-containing materials, determine their condition, and recommend options for managing any identified risk.
At Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire, our consultants are accredited and experienced in carrying out comprehensive asbestos surveys for properties, including those in Hampshire. Our team will conduct surveys in a professional, reliable and compliant manner, always ensuring the safety of the premises, its occupants and the environment.
When buying a property, the law states that it is the responsibility of the buyer to ensure that they understand any environmental hazards and proposed developments or changes in surrounding locations, particularly if there are any specific risks flagged. Conversely, sellers are required to provide relevant information about the property, including any asbestos surveys that have been conducted before the sale process starts.
Asbestos is a particularly significant environmental risk that must be identified when assessing the safety of a property before buying. If the seller has not carried out a test, it is recommended that the buyer arranges for an asbestos survey to be carried out. Affordable Asbestos Removal Hampshire offers support to both sellers and buyers in conducting such surveys and subsequent removals.
