Asbestos in your property
It’s important to remember that asbestos-containing materials aren’t a cause for concern if it’s in good condition and in a place where they’re unlikely to be disturbed. It’s only when the asbestos-containing materials are damaged or disturbed that asbestos can become a danger.
It's important that you don't damage asbestos or handle asbestos that’s been damaged.
If you’re a homeowner or a private landlord, you’re responsible for managing asbestos inside your property, including the safe removal of any asbestos.
If removal or repair of any asbestos-containing material is required, the work will be carried out by an approved licensed asbestos removal contractor.
