Asbestos Survey

Over the next few months we will be undertaking an asbestos survey on some of our properties.

We are required to do this periodically on properties over a certain age which may contain asbestos materials.

We have a register of our properties which contain asbestos and the survey will check if the information we hold is accurate.

We have appointed MCP Environmental to undertake the surveys and, if it is necessary to survey your property, you will receive a letter from us.
