Asbestos Management Survey for a home in Manchester

Selling your home can be a stressful time and worrying about the presence of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) within your home can bring additional concern, especially if they hinder the sale of your home.

To avoid this stress, the homeowners of this beautiful semi-detached property in Swinton, Greater Manchester, enlisted the help of our asbestos consultants. We undertook a thorough asbestos management survey which enabled the completion of the sale.

The survey was requested by the mortgage lender and, although asbestos management surveys are not a legal requirement for residential properties, banks and mortgage lenders are requesting asbestos surveys more frequently to ensure the safety of the buyers.

If ACMs are found within a property pre-sale, they can be subject to remediation works or full asbestos removal works (if needed) before the sale will be finalized. This is to ensure that there are no hidden or unexpected cost or health implications picked up by the buyer.
