Hello neighbours 

Does anyone know where the usual locations are for the asbestos inside Cullum Welch House flats? 

I'm a private tenant and our landlord is not too eager to get a survey done despite my requests. He did say that he thinks it's behind the kitchen unit cupboards and is not sure where else it is located. 

The flat seems to be in its original condition with very little updating. My concern is that there's lots of wear and tear (walls and floors are badly damaged) within the flat and i feel I have a right to know where the asbestos is and what condition it is in. 

Despite my ongoing efforts COL can't really help me as it's a private lease. 

Recently a curtain panel fell down and pulled a bit of ceiling plaster with it, exposing long strands of a yarn like threads. It's not insulation as it's seems mixed with the plaster and it quite sparsely positioned. Has anyone come across this before?  

The flat also has the original black vinyl tiles in the hallway and bathroom, I suspect that such flooring may contain asbestos  - does anyone know for certain?  

Any advice or information would be appreciated  - feel free to DM me.  Thank you!

I lived in Cullum Welch years ago when they updated the kitchens and bathrooms and from what I can remember, the asbestos was under the flooring in the kitchen. It's probably best to ask the estate office though to confirm.

Thank you Richard for your reply.

I do recall when the asbestos guys were here many years ago to do the kitchens as my neigbour's flat had work carried out. 


Estate office were no help at all. I would expect at least have some original plans with details about materials to consult but i was just given an email to a contact in the housing dept at COL, who couldn't really answer my questions. 

I've been trying for a while now to find out about asbestos locations in the Cullum Welch house flats. Basically I've  passed around different contacts in COL. Bottom line is that they can't help because they don't have records of asbestos in the leaseholders flat.

Anyone else want to offer advice to my asbestos question? Has any Cullum Welch leaseholders had asbestos surveys carried out? Thank you.
