Asbestos is a frightful substance,
and the members of the community need to know every building in the area that
contains asbestos. The register is a collection of information that helps
people who are looking for homes or business space in the area. The register
compiles information from a number of inspections, and the register provides
the community with the assurance that they are safe.
The register lists every address in the community that has been inspected. The
register shows if the building tested positive for asbestos, and the register
shows if the asbestos was removed. There are many buildings that test positive
for asbestos, but the owners or buyers do not spend the money to have the
asbestos removed. This means that these buildings could sit for years without
any repairs or extraction.
The buyer can use the information in the register to decide if they want to
invest in the building. The register shows the existence of asbestos in the
space, but the register also shows how much asbestos there was. Some buyers may
feel that the levels are low enough to warrant investment in the space, but there
are other spaces that may be too far gone to fix.
The Community Leaders
Community leaders can use the information in the asbestos register to decide if
certain buildings need to be condemned or torn down. The asbestos register will
show the date of the last test, the level of asbestos and the build date of the
structure. Community leaders could easily decide that a building must be torn
so that it does not become a local health risk.
The asbestos register
provides more than enough information for buyers, sellers
and community leaders. The register keeps the community safe while providing
investors with information they need on their next project.
