Asbestos

If you have a client who is selling or buying a property which has asbestos identified at the property do not panic. Whilst there is a view that its removal is extremely expensive I understand that some Local Authorities offer a free collection service. 

Clearly anyone removing asbestos should seek professional advice but if it is a case of removal of boarding under the stairs or sheets of asbestos on a garage roof, provided care is taken and proper face masks are worn the asbestos may be removed and then placed in plastic bags. 

Some Local Authorities offer a free collection service for a limited amount and then make a small charge for each sheet thereafter.  The client or you should check with the relevant LA before embarking on any work whether they offer a free collection service otherwise it is then down to seeking a professional help.
