what can i do about people calling to do an asbestos survey?
i live in a 3rd floor council flat of a 4th story building and i had a call today from my housing landlords , a representative that they want to send out some people to carry out an asbestos survey? that these people will be in grey boiler suits and masks and they will need to have access to every room and cupboard.....i accepted and arranged for the appointment to be sometime this week.
however i have a lot of stuff in my flat and are a private person, and i resent and do not want strangers in boiler suits to come to my flat and inspect every room i find that invasive and disruptive?
im a male aged 42 with mental health problems, is there anything i can do about this? or what can i do?

What can I do ? Accept that these people are coming and get organised. Move stuff onto your bed say from the cupboards and cover everything with a sheet to hide it.

your right is to grow up and deal with it...i get you have mental issues, but you need to be adult and deal with it. this is not whenever they feel like it, it is for reasonable maintenance.
pack up and store your stuff somewhere if you won't want them seeing it.

You can spend your time clearing, cleaning and packing up ( and getting rid of junk you do not need/want) so they can do their job when they arrive

With asbestos, it's better to know. It can kill you.

You don't own the flat. There is NOTHING you can do about this.
You have been given notice as legally required.

Just let them in and hide the weird porn stuff you keep hanging around the place - you may want to deflate "Lucious Lucy"

The annual asbestos survey is just a bureaucratic boondoggle. The only places where there could even possibly be asbestos is in the roof which has nothing to do with your flat. If they visit you at all (unlikely) you will open the door, they will walk inside, pretend to look right and left and immediately walk out again. They will wear normal clothes.

Buy your own private house since you are always complaining about your neighbors,neighborhood and rental unit OR move back to your mother's house.
