Asbestos

Asbestos was a very popular building material in homes for many years.

Using asbestos in building was not banned in the United Kingdom until 1999, which means that many of the homes we manage are likely to have some asbestos in them.

As one of our tenants you can now download a report, which tells you where asbestos is located in your property. You should find the information particularly useful if you are doing DIY.

If there is asbestos in your home, this does not automatically mean there is a problem. Asbestos fibres can only affect your health if they become damaged, either accidentally or while they are being worked on during building work or DIY.

We have produced an information leaflet that explains all you need to know about asbestos.
