    40 year old House - 'May' contain Asbestos Type Material? 22nd Aug 09 at 12:06 PM
    We've just received out Homebuyers Survey this morning and there is mention of "may contain asbestos type material in the following:

    Boarding to Soffits
    Interal walls where artex is present. (also notes this could be expensive to repair)
    Ceiling artex

    It also states:

    Asbestos cement flue and terminal above side roof slope.

    Valuation isn't affected but must admit we're slightly freaked out by it as we have two young children.

    The artex walls we were planning to have replastered to make them flat and probably the ceilings too in time.

    Is this as bad as it sounds?

    Any advise would be great.
