Hello, I’m selling a flat and the buyers’ survey has come back saying there is a potential risk of asbestos in the airing cupboard where the immersion tank is.
The flats were gutted and redeveloped in the eighties.
The management company have conducted an asbestos survey on the outside fabric of the building and common areas and that showed that some roof facials contained asbestos but all other areas were free.
The building’s manager says this has never been an issue.
The buyers want a report and removal if present which is counterproductive as HSE advice is to leave it unless deteriorating.
