I hope this is not the wrong forum and also that this isn't a question that comes up all the time. I'm the new owner of victorian terraced house in London which I'm concerned has a few asbestos problems. As I know nothing about most home issues I thought it might help if I posted a few pictures of the grey powder I've discovered in my loft. It is evident where ceiling beams are attached to the wall that separates two lofts. I've heard conflicting advice as to whether it could be asbestos or not but I'd rather not waste money on a professional survey if it just looks like perished mortar dust for example.
The property is late victorian and the roof is the original slate roof. Below are links to some photos that are stored on my Dropbox cloud.
