Have you had Asbestos Flagged on a Home Buyers Report?
Aac.Ltd is a local Asbestos Solutions Consultancy based in Reading, Berkshire.
What does the Homebuyer Survey include? The Homebuyer Survey includes a visual inspection of all major indoor features including roofs, ceilings, walls, and bathrooms, as well as permanent outdoor buildings and features including roofing, pipes, gutters, walls, windows, and doors.
We undertake many last minute Asbestos Management Surveys and
think it would be productive to raise some 'Asbestos Awareness' earlier in the house buying/selling process.
Note to home buyers/sellers
Any building built pre-2000, has the potential to contain Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM's).
Homeowners and Landlords are often advised to assume that
some form of asbestos is present in all buildings pre the year 2000.
Asbestos containing materials have been used after the above date
due to stock-piles of the material being utilised after the prohibition..
For prospective residential home buyers, both the 'RICS' surveys
(Level 3 : Building Survey and the Level 2: Home buyer Report)
will flag signs of asbestos (depending on the Surveyors experience).
'RICS' surveyors do not undertake asbestos sampling during their inspections due to not being qualified to do so.
An Asbestos Management Survey will identify the type, location, extent and condition of any 'Asbestos Containing Materials' (ACM's) identified during normal building occupancy and light maintenance work. This data will be captured to produce a concise survey report with room locations, sample pictures and annotated floor plans. Risk assessments and recommendations for any ACM's identified are included. Contact us for free for a free consultation now on 0800 774 7264
