(sorry posted in the wrong forum)

When I moved into my house I had all the carpets replaced and the ground floor was tiled with old vinyl type tiles

They were generally in good condition but all the ones around the edges where damaged by previous carpet grip strips

The carpet was installed over this old flooring would this cause a problem?

At the time (20 years ago) I had no idea they were asbestos

Will it cause a problem? No. 'Do not disturb' is the maxim for products like floor tiles which MAY include asbestos. Whilst you disturbed it a bit when re carpeting, it's back safely covered.
