Asbestos roof tiles

A Kingston Vale builder commented that there could be powdery asbestos soffit boards situated in the ground floor flat. What is asbestos, are there any risks and does the HomeBuyer Report in Kingston Vale go into it?

Asbestos is a noxious silicate material of several naturally occurring materials. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials including eaves.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in ironing boards.

All forms are pernicious and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to break the asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP.
