Who is liable for asbestos in a business or commercial property?

According to the HSE - 

If you’re the landlord, tenant or managing agent of a commercial property you may be responsible for managing asbestos, unless your contract or lease says otherwise.

Failure to have a plan of action to remove or encapsulate the asbestos could lead to -

  • £20,000 fine
  • 12 months in prison

It also doesn't matter if the property is derelict or vacant. Without a clear plan to have the asbestos containing materials dealt with could lead to a penalty. 

As well as asbestos removal, we can also provide asbestos surveys, which are designed to highlight if asbestos is present in or around your property, as well as determining what type of asbestos it is and the risk it poses.

Some common examples of where you might find asbestos in your industrial property are -

  • Lagging on pipes and boilers
  • Loose fill insulation
  • Asbestos cement
  • Asbestos insulation board
  • Panels in windows and doors
  • Floor and roof tiles

This visual highlights just how widespread asbestos containing products can be.
