Asbestos

Some of the properties we manage may have some areas which contain asbestos materials.

We have previously removed any asbestos which is likely to be easily damage or likely to cause any health and safety.

Remember - Generally if asbestos is left undisturbed it will not cause you any harm.

Before Waltham Forest Housing carries out any work which are likely to disturb asbestos we carry out a survey to establish if any asbestos is present and if so how we can safely carry out the work.

Planning to decorate or do work on your home?

If you are going to do any work in property which could disturb asbestos e.g. drilling into a wall or ceiling please e-mail  PropertyServices@walthamforest.gov.uk or call us on 0208496 4096. We will confirm what information we have regarding asbestos in your home. If an asbestos inspection is required before you do the work we will arrange for this to take place (this does not apply to leaseholders).
