We regularly survey and update the information we hold on any properties that show presence of any asbestos-containing materials.
Asbestos is most likely to be found in homes built between the 1950s and early 1980s. Properties built since then are unlikely to contain asbestos in the fabric of the building but may contain some traces in other areas.
When we survey homes we will always make you aware if any asbestos exists and any actions that may be necessary to ensure your property remains in a safe condition.
We want to reassure you that if you receive a letter to say that asbestos-containing materials have been found in your home, we will manage and monitor them on your behalf.
Materials containing asbestos are perfectly safe as long as they are not disturbed, for instance, by drilling, cutting or rubbing where dust has been created. Please contact us for advice if you plan to carry out any DIY in your home and you think you have asbestos present.
If you are due to have work carried out in your home by a Link tradesperson, they will carry out additional preparations before work commences and will advise if this extra work will affect you.
