How likely is my property in Newcastle to have asbestos within it?

Asbestos can be present in any property that was built or renovated before the year 2000 and if you own a commercial property then it is your legal obligation to manage the risk of asbestos. The HSE provides further guidance on this with the Control of Asbestos Regulations from 2012 stating that owners and/or employers of non-domestic properties should manage the risk of asbestos within their premises.

If you are worried that you have asbestos on your property in Newcastle then please get in touch with us and we will carry out an asbestos survey before preparing and executing an asbestos removal project if required.

We have a guide on where you can find asbestos in industrial properties and the HSE also has a useful visual.

Common examples on where asbestos can be found in your property in Newcastle, include -

  • Lagging, which is used as insulation on pipes
  • Down pipes and guttering
  • Roof and floor tiles
  • Asbestos cement sheets
  • Ovens and furnaces
  • Wallboards
