Asked by newbuyerk, Ridgewood, NJ • Wed Sep 18, 2013
I bought a home recently and after comments from friends, it looks like I may have a room and parts of basement with asbestos tiles. I have two questions:
1) Isnt the home inspector supposed to warn us on this ? The home buying is so complicated - is none of the inspector, assessor or sellers disclosure supposed to warn us of this ? The seller claims he didn't know but then we see relatively newer tiles in the basement - shouldn't they know ? how can we know that they really didn't know or just lied ?
2) Will the home insurance pay for removal of these tiles ?
3) Is it better to demolish the room and parts and rebuild. Do we need to call the expensive guys. One guy gave me a quote of about $2K and another $4K. Is this reasonable say for 100-200 sqft ?
