Asbestos Disclosure

Last Modified 5/7/2017

(last edited 5/7/2017)
Asbestos is a heat-resistant mineral used in many insulating materials often found in the home. Exposure to Asbestos may be released in the air during repairs or remodeling of a home, demolition or some home maintenance. If inhaled, or exposed to Asbestos the risks of lung cancer, asbestos, and mesothelioma are higher.

BEWARE: It is common knowledge that asbestos is usually found in building materials such as siding, roofing, the interior ceilings and walls in some aged homes. However, did you know that asbestos can also be found in older ovens, popcorn making machines and even in hairdryers? Be very careful when scouring through flea markets and yard sales; although asbestos has been banned from inclusion since 1979, there are still some oldies out there.

Many older buildings contain some building materials with asbestos is almost always a given. In some jurisdictions, landlords are required to disclose whether asbestos may be present in the property’s building materials. Even if it’s not required in your area, distributing this disclosure to tenants is a good standard practice that may even help shield you from future legal action.

The presence itself of Asbestos is not harmful unless tampered with, which may result in the fibers being released. This may be done by scraping, sanding or other remodeling techniques that may cause the fibers to be released.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency does not require the material to be removed from the premises, but in homes where asbestos is known to be located or in states where this may be a requirement; the landlord must provide this form to the tenant at the signing of a lease and the lease renewal. This form warns the tenant that the property may contain asbestos. It includes directions for hanging any type of wall ornament and what procedures the tenant must follow in case a water leak or any type of malfunction that may cause the exposure of Asbestos.

Please Note: This form is designed to be printed and filled out by hand.
