Search process - asbestos removal program - Residential properties ONLY

Property owners and former owners or tenants and tradespersons who can prove a connection with an address can apply to undertake a Loose Asbestos Removal Program Search to find out if a residential property they resided in, or carried out work on/in contained loose fill asbestos insulation and was part of an asbestos removal program. There is no fee for this service.
