Is it common for asbestos to still be found in properties in the UK?

General guidance is that if your industrial or commercial property was constructed or renovated before the year 2000 then you should assume that it could contain asbestos, with approximately 1.5 million buildings having some form of asbestos in them.

If you are a landlord, tenant or managing agent of a property that has a commercial use then you may be liable for managing any asbestos that is present in or around the building (more can be read about this here).

Asbestos was popular because of its ability to not only insulate but also resist heat, making it a versatile material in the construction sector. However, its link to long term health lead to it being banned from use in the UK.

It can be found across a wide range of products within industrial properties. Examples of where we regularly find it when carrying out asbestos surveys include -

  • Lagging around boilers and hot water pipes
  • Sprayed on coatings that can be found on ceilings, walls and beams
  • Floor and roof tiles
  • Asbestos cement which was generally used on the exterior of buildings in areas like  guttering, down pipes and chimney flues
  • Asbestos insulation board (also referred to as AIB)
  • Window frames
  • Fire door panels 

The HSE has a visual showing how wide spread asbestos can be in an industrial property.
