Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of asbestos boilers concealed in the home. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and Should we still go ahead with the purchase?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials such as flooring materials.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fireplace. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken never to disturb asbestos. Professional advice should be sought urgently. You should never try to remove it yourself. Surveyors

cannot confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. Your surveyor will mention suspected asbestos and should recommend professional testing.

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the residence in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.
