An asbestos risk assessment must be carried out to common parts. You should take reasonable measures to identify the presence and assess the risk of asbestos to let areas. If appropriate, depending on circumstances such as the age and history of the building, an asbestos survey should be carried out with all recommendations adhered to. You must draw the attention of occupiers, contractors and others at potential risk to the presence of any asbestos and take all necessary measures to ensure the risk is managed safely.
