Asbestos is a natural mineral found in rocks. Its strong and flexible fibres led to it being used commercially in the home for over 150 years.

Previous uses for asbestos have included:

  • Floor tiles
  • Textured coatings on ceilings / walls
  • Corrugated roofing sheets for sheds and garages
  • Boarding and boxing materials (for example boxing in pipe work between flats).

To manage any existing asbestos in the rented home that we manage, we have carried out a survey of all the communal areas where it may be found.

All major planned modernisation work to rented homes also includes an asbestos survey, which is carried out before work starts.

If a survey shows asbestos is present and unsafe, or that it will be affected by the work that we will be doing, it will be removed by a specialist contractor.

As a tenant, it is your responsibility to:

  • Contact us before carrying out any work that you think may disturb material you suspect contains asbestos
  • Report any materials in your home that you suspect contain asbestos that are damaged.

If you have any concerns about asbestos in your home, please contact us.
