If your house is pre-2000 and you are planning building works, you are obliged to inform contractors of any presence of Asbestos within the property under Health & Safety Regulations (CDM 2015).

Your house purchase survey may contain an asbestos report, however, if it does not then a Refurbishment and Demolition Survey will be required prior to works being carried out. Clients should appoint registered testers to carry out this survey.
