Asbestos responsibilities of landlords and property professionals

Anybody who owns or manages properties that might contain asbestos (i.e. any that were built before 1999) has duties under the Control of Asbestos Regulations (CAR), 2012. These responsibilities include the protection of tenants, contractors, employees, and the public.

They must be protected from known risks or risks that you should be aware of if you comply with your duties to survey the property at the appropriate times and in the appropriate locations. Typically, this means before any refurbishment and as part of your asbestos management plan.

Landlord asbestos management survey

We work with large and small landlords, and their professional advisors to deliver asbestos compliance services. The benefits of keeping on top of these responsibilities include tenant safety, reputation management, and peace of mind for all concerned.

If you are a landlord, we can help you to meet your legal obligations and efficiently deliver services across your property portfolio. We can help you maximise commercial return by removing potential concerns and objections from tenants and avoiding the risk of costly prosecution.

We currently look after a portfolio of properties for a large well-established property management company in Middlesbrough. And, we have undertaken asbestos management surveys of communal areas of various HMO properties (houses in multiple occupation) throughout the North, including Manchester, Leeds, Middlesbrough and Newcastle.

Asbestos services for property developers and Quantity Surveyors

If you are a property developer, then we can give you the full picture in relation to a property, its potential risks, and how best to manage them. You will also at times need an asbestos refurbishment or demolition survey for legal compliance, where refurbishment works are planned. This is mainly for the protection of workers and contractors.

Asbestos services for facilities managers, project managers, and in-house property professionals

We can assist you to deliver on your responsibilities, meet your organisation’s compliance obligations, and upskill your team in managing asbestos risks. Most often, this involves asbestos surveys, asbestos management plans, and asbestos awareness training.

Environmental Inspection can advise on the specific obligations in particular circumstances, and use our full range of asbestos expertise and experience across the lifecycle of projects to advise on all aspects of asbestos and related risk management.

Asbestos services for agents

Environmental Inspection can help you to support landlords with professional, comprehensive, and friendly advice on any aspect of asbestos risk management.
