Our fully qualified Asbestos Surveyors operate within Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Sheffield and a number of other areas, with a range of services including:


01. Material testing

Although the identification of suspect asbestos material is possible, it needs to be professionally analysed to be confirmed as asbestos.

An Asbestos Testing Survey includes our trained surveyor removing a sample of suspected material which will be taken to an independent UKAS accredited laboratory to be thoroughly examined to HSE and ISO standards. You will be provided with an official certificate of results within 48 hours.

02. Homebuyer asbestos survey

Before buying a house, it is always advised to know if the property contains asbestos. Not only is this for your own peace of mind, but it also may impact your lender’s decision in terms of the asking price. We understand carrying out further surveys can be a nightmare, so our Asbestos Homebuyer Survey can be carried out to fit around the property seller.

The purpose of the Asbestos Homebuyer Survey is to identify any kind of asbestos present which could be disturbed during normal daily activities. The survey involves minor intrusive work. On completion, a detailed Asbestos Homebuyer Survey will be provided to you within 3 working days.

03. Asbestos management survey

Management Surveys are non-intrusive inspections designed to locate the presence and extent of asbestos-containing materials. Samples of suspected material are taken and analysed by an independent UKAS-accredited laboratory.

The laboratory results, along with material condition and surveyor advice are compiled into an Asbestos Management Survey Report and provided to you within 3 working days of the property visit.


04. Domestic asbestos refurbishment survey

This survey is for anyone who owns a property which was built Pre-2000 and intends to carry out refurbishment works.

A domestic Asbestos Refurbishment Survey is designed to locate and describe asbestos-containing materials in the area(s) where refurbishment works will take place. This is a fully intrusive survey which requires access to all areas of the property, including behind partitions and hard-to-reach areas. For small domestic renovations, it may be more feasible for an Asbestos Test Survey rather than a full refurbishment survey. Contact us for more information.

At Smart Asbestos Services, we work with you and your requirements to fit our services to your needs. There is not a “one size fits all” Asbestos Survey, so we find the most cost-effective and accurate solution for you.

As part of our Asbestos Survey service, you will be provided (as standard) with a P402 Qualified Asbestos Surveyor visit, suspect material removal from your property, independent UKAS Accredited Laboratory analysis and results, Asbestos Survey Report and ongoing advice and guidance as required. We only use independent UKAS Accredited Laboratories because this gives you peace of mind that the survey has been completed impartially.

Asbestos Survey FAQs

Being based in Nottingham ourselves, we cover the local areas of Nottingham, Derby, Chesterfield and Newark with our Asbestos Surveys, including Management Surveys, Homebuyer, Refurbishment, Re-inspection and Material Testing.

This depends on the property, size number of rooms and type of survey you require. There is no “one size fits all”, which is why we offer a free quotation once we receive your requirements.

If the house you intend to buy was built Pre-2000 then we would always advise that you get an Asbestos Survey completed. This gives you peace of mind as to what material the house is made up of, but also gives you room to negotiate the asking price to account for future Asbestos Removal works.

However, there is no legal duty to get an Asbestos Survey when buying a house.

No, there are no laws which prevent you from selling a home which contains asbestos. The only legal requirement is that if you know asbestos is contained within the house you must declare it.

You can read more about this within our article on disclosing asbestos when selling a house in the UK.

Asbestos use was fully banned in 1999 for all types, therefore, If your house was built before the year 2000 then it may contain asbestos. Any home built after this is highly unlikely to contain asbestos.

We specialise in Domestic Asbestos Surveys, therefore we normally allocate half a day to a full day to have your survey completed. Any material taken for testing will be processed through a UKAS Accredited lab within 48 hours, and your Asbestos Survey Report will be provided to you within 3 working days from the initial survey date.
