How to Deal With Asbestos if You're a Landlord
As a landlord you have a moral and legal obligation to ensure that the properties you lease are safe and secure. If you own a house that was built prior to 1988 there is a very high chance that it contains asbestos. While this isn't necessarily cause for alarm, it's something that you should assess with close scrutiny. What Risk Does it Pose to Your Tenants? Exposure to asbestos can cause lung cancer, mesothelioma, pleural plaque and other other health issues that could be very dangerous, possibly even fatal.
