Asbestos: Outlining Responsibilities – England and Wales

In the first of a two articles related to asbestos and rental properties, we explore the health risks associated with asbestos fibre inhalation and the legal responsibilities of landlords in managing this risk to health. We point to the two most common health and safety regulations that are referred to and used by prosecuting authorities for asbestos-related breaches. We also provide examples of the extent of asbestos use, so landlords and agents are familiar with the potential risks and are better equipped to manage their legal responsibilities involving asbestos.

Stay poised for Part Two, which will outline the practical steps landlords can take in creating or reviewing an asbestos management plan.
