Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there could be brown asbestos toilet cistern in existence at the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous substance formed from metamorphic rocks. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials e.g. boards around windows. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good tensile strength qualities and it may be found in boards around radiators. It is mainly found in South Africa. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a single fibre will not kill you.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to move it and professional advice should be sought without delay. Professional removal of it will probably be dear and must always be carried out by experts.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. They will mention suspected asbestos and will inform you of the options.
