    I think the “fit for reoccupation” element shouldn’t focus on just the asbestos fibre issue (as the survey should not release enough fibres to be an issue unless there is a really bad accident…) but also on the general way the space has been left.

    For example, if floor coverings have been lifted have they been put back sufficiently to prevent a trip hazard?  If floorboards are lifted, have they been de-nailed and replaced?  Have any removed timber trims (archetraves and the like) been de-nailed and put out of harm’s way?

    In simple terms, have we (the surveyor) left the space safe to re-enter by others without precautions that weren’t necessary prior to the survey.
