Control of Asbestos
This note explains the duties imposed on people who have either obligations under contracts or tenancies to maintain or repair non-domestic property, or control over non-domestic premises or over access to non-domestic property. From 6 April 2012 these duties are imposed by the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012.
The duties affect freehold owners, landlords, tenants and, in certain circumstances, licensees and managing agents. Non-domestic premises can include areas of what normally would be regarded as residential property.
