Asbestos Surveys In Tunbridge Wells

With a blend of property types dotted throughout the town centre and the surrounding countryside, the investment potential for homeowners in Tunbridge Wells is high – making this destination in Kent a coveted place to call home.

One of the main selling points for buyers and homeowners in Tunbridge Wells is the array of property types in terms of both size and age – with period homes and older structures juxtaposing the modern builds and newer homes. And while this variety adds to the charm of the town, it also throws up a series of challenges for those who own older properties – namely in the form of the foundations and material stability of their home, particularly around the use of asbestos.

Asbestos was once a popular and commonly used material in the construction industry, not just across Tunbridge Wells and Kent but across the UK and overseas. Since the 1990s, however, asbestos has become recognised as a harmful material which has direct links with health concerns and long term respiratory issues – with the material banned in construction and architecture since 2000.

What does that mean for you?

Ever since asbestos was banned for use in construction, homeowners who reside in or own older properties are being encouraged to undergo property surveys to determine both the presence and stability of any asbestos within the structure of their homes. Specific regulations are in place for those who wish to renovate or alter the structure of their homes, with two different asbestos surveys in place for different situations.

The first is a simple management survey, which sees an asbestos expert enter and survey the property – finding traces of the material and assessing its stability and safety levels. Depending on the location of the material and its state, this can then be upgraded to a removal service or recommended for further survey on a regular basis.

The second type of asbestos survey is an asbestos removal survey. This service is a regulatory requirement for any homeowner or developer undergoing renovation or demolition work, as it ensures that the property is vacated before the material is tampered with.
