If your property was built pre-2000, it could contain asbestos.
Homeowners and landlords are often advised to assume that
some form of asbestos is present in all buildings pre the year 2000
For prospective residential home buyers, both the RICS surveys (Level 3 : Building Survey and the Level 2: Homebuyer Report) will flag signs of asbestos (depending on the Surveyors experience), If you are unsure it is always best to commission an Asbestos Survey where suspect materials can be sampled safely and analysed.
'RICS' surveyors do not undertake asbestos sampling during their inspections.
