Asbestos Survey in Notting Hill

A high end and vibrant area in West London, Notting Hill is a place where traditional London meets the modern lifestyle, and where the assortment of structures and property types lend themselves to the property portfolios of families as well as young couples and individual buyers.

And while buying a traditional London townhouse in this popular and coveted area of West London is largely seen as an asset, there are often challenges that come with owning an older property that homeowners can be known to overlook. One of these is the importance of an asbestos survey, considering and assessing both the presence and stability of any asbestos within the structure of the property, to ensure the long term health and safety of residents.

Asbestos, once a commonly used material in construction and building work, was banned for use in building work from the 1990s onwards, when it was found to directly contribute towards debilitating health conditions and respiratory issues. As the material is only dangerous when it breaks down and sits as dust particles in the air, a large part of our survey work lies in assessing the stability of any asbestos in a property – ensuring it does not pose an immediate risk. So, how do you know if you need an asbestos survey in Notting Hill?

Understanding the asbestos survey process

You do not need to have proof that asbestos is present in your property, in order to book and secure an asbestos survey. Depending on the age of your property, our team will conduct one of two surveys:

  1. An asbestos management survey
  2. An asbestos removal survey

The first sees our team of experts enter and assess the property – identifying asbestos and drawing up a report which outlines the stability and structure of any asbestos. If the material is still intact and poses no immediate risk, then regular maintenance checks will be recommended. If the asbestos is breaking down, then you may be upgraded to a removal service.

The asbestos removal survey is conducted by trained professionals, who have experience in safely removing and disposing of asbestos. This survey is a requirement for any homeowners or developers who are undergoing demolition or renovation work and may also be required if asbestos is found to be unstable in an occupied property.
