If there is asbestos in your home, it's important to take extra care when carrying out any DIY. Do not do any work which involves drilling, cutting or disturbing materials suspected of containing asbestos. Do not scrape or sand suspected asbestos materials before painting or decorating and do not attempt to remove any asbestos yourself. 

Before you attempt any DIY, use your My NCHA account to contact us for advice.

Where asbestos remains we have a duty to check its condition regularly. The frequency of the checks depends on the individual property, but we will contact you in advance to arrange an appointment if we need to check your home.
