I recently moved into a rental which belongs to my parents and found out that there is abestos on the outside and inside of this three-storey 1919 house. The outside plates (tiles) cover all around the third floor and all around the bottom floor. It is also in the bathroom floor tiles but that is covered by vinyl flooring and is not exposed. The insulation and wiring for only the hot water tank had been replaced and the abestos had been properly taken out. However, because this house is so old there is no record as to what other abestos lies within this house. It will be a lengthy expensive procedure to remove the abestos which I cannot afford right now. If the abestos is not disturbed I heard that this will not be a major health concern. How true is this? Is there any other abestos that may be within this old house that I should be aware of? Should I worry about the weather elements eroding the abestos tiles outside? It looks unworn for it near 100 year condition. Is there a link you can direct me to with regards to the full info about abestos? I live in Vancouver, British Columbia and know that a permit is required to remove abestos properly and dispose of safely. Are there other legal issues I should be aware of? Ths is a great concern and I would not have moved here if I had known about this but it is too late and I would like to recitify this when I can financially afford to do so. I may have to see if there is any govenment grant or funding for renos because this is such a dangerous material.
