How much does an asbestos survey cost?
What is an asbestos survey?????
Firstly, asbestos doesn't have to be worrying or confusing,
much of the time it's just a question of gathering enough
information about any asbestos materials you may have in
your property and choosing the right course of action to
keep the materials safe.
For both domestic and commercial buildings there is usually
not much to do, if the materials are unlikely to be
disturbed during normal use of the building. If you
don't have the right information from a helpful source it
can seem difficult to know the correct way to go, we help
you through every step of keeping your property safe and
legal, whether it's domestic or commercial.
Please remember asbestos fibres are a
carcinogenic material that can cause various types of cancer
if breathed in, it was used in many materials for many
years, much of it is still in place. An asbestos survey will
determine if you have any of these materials in your
property and explain what you need to do to make them safe
and keep them safe (most are low risk and require no
There is usually no need for
expensive removal unless, the material is too
damaged to repair, it is regularly disturbed or it is likely
to be disturbed by planned refurbishment or demolition.
DOMESTIC ASBESTOS SURVEYS:
When buying or
selling a domestic property an asbestos survey is often
requested by those involved in the transaction, to ensure
the house does not present a risk in terms of a significant
asbestos presence which may result in high costs for removal
/ mediation (sealing).
A normal 'management survey' will
normally be sufficient but if the buyer plans significant
refurbishment then a more intrusive 'refurbishment' survey
would be the better option, if the specific areas of
refurbishment can be detailed then a 'hybrid' survey can be
carried out which is a mixture of both, this limits the
possibility of any cosmetic damage to the minimum.

COMMERCIAL ASBESTOS SURVEYS:
domestic building or group of buildings, where people work,
is classed as a commercial property, the
Control of Asbestos
Regulations 2012 require the 'duty holder' (usually the
person responsible for maintenance and repair of the
building) to find and manage any asbestos materials within
any building built before 1999, in order to protect those who enter the
for whatever reason, from asbestos exposure,
including staff, contractors and members of the public.
Complying with the various requirements of the asbestos
regulations is not as complex as it sounds,
we help you through every step, firstly you find
out where it is and what it is (survey), unfortunately even
if the building is 'too new' to contain asbestos it will
still require an asbestos survey to show that 'no suspect
materials found' essentially a 'paper exercise'.
If the asbestos containing materials (ACM's) are in good
condition then you leave it alone, if there is minor damage then
you make it safe by repairing, covering, or careful removal
(low risk materials only using suitable control measures
based on report recommendations). On rare occasions
materials with significant damage and/or are high risk must
be removed using licensed removal contractors, in these
cases competitive quotes from INDEPENDANT licensed
contractors can be obtained, (we don't create our own
When maintenance staff or visiting contractors need to carry
out work within the building they/you refer to the asbestos
survey report first, to ensure the work they are about to
carry out will not disturb any of the asbestos materials in
the asbestos 'register' (part of the report), that is
'asbestos management' simplified.
we offer full instruction on the management requirements for
all asbestos materials found and remain available for
telephone advice for all clients.
