To meet the requirements of the 'duty to manage asbestos' under regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 the services of an asbestos surveyor may be used to identify the location and type of asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) in premises.

How much does an asbestos survey cost?

Domestic. As a rough guide, a typical asbestos survey for a domestic property will probably cost between £150 and £350.

Commercial. For commercial properties, an asbestos survey is going to cost £600 (GBP) or more depending on the building size.

The cost of an asbestos survey will vary significantly based on several factors such as building size, the number of asbestos lab samples taken, and type of survey.

What can affect the cost of an asbestos survey?

Size. The size of the building will significantly affect the cost of an asbestos survey because, if it is large, it will take longer to carry out the inspection and more samples may need to be taken.

Asbestos Samples. The number of laboratory samples taken could increase the survey cost dramatically since asbestos samples could cost around £10 each.

Survey Types. The main types of asbestos surveys are based on whether the purpose of the inspection is for management, refurbishment or demolition.

How to get an asbestos survey at the best price?

As usual, is it a good idea to get 3 competitive quotes from various asbestos surveying practices so you can compare report prices.

One thing you may not be aware of is that asbestos surveyors who use pen and paper to do inspections are likely to charge more because of the time involved putting the report together manually!

On the other hand, asbestos surveyors who use modern software will be able to produce your reports much more quickly and therefore are likely to charge less!
