If your property was built prior to 2000 it could contain asbestos materials in the structure and finishes. 

Increasingly house purchasers are wanting to know if their new home is going to be a safe place to live, and conveyancing solicitors and mortgage providers are wanting asbestos information as part of their lending criteria.  You would probably also want to know if you were buying into potentially expensive asbestos removal works in the future.

As far as the Control of Asbestos Regulations are concerned, a full asbestos survey will be needed as soon as you employ someone such as a builder, plumber or electrician, to carry out any work which could disturb asbestos materials and cause harm.

M&W can offer a speedy and cost efficient service for home owners or prospective purchasers requiring a full home asbestos survey.
