We have had a small number of Owners asking us not to do an Asbestos Survey
I have to let you all know it is law that we have a Survey carried out on your Property with some prosecutions already going through the Tenancy Tribunal
Below is the advise one of our Owners received direct from Worksafe
Thank you for your enquiry.
The WorkSafe NZ published Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) for management and removal of asbestos refers to the year 2000 as the date when buildings should be suspected as containing asbestos containing material. The information in the ACoP was developed in consultation with industry prior to publication. https://worksafe.govt.nz/topic-and-industry/asbestos/management-and-removal-of-asbestos/
Legislation covering asbestos includes:
WorkSafe would not expect an asbestos survey to be carried out on a building constructed post 2018 unless there was reason to suspect that asbestos was present.

Fortunately Tauranga Rentals Ltd has an experienced Building Practitioner in Dan Lusby and can do these Surveys for a fraction of the cost an Asbestos Removal Company would charge
We just want to let you know we are doing these Surveys to comply with the Governments Compliance Legislation on all properties built before 2016.
