Loose-fill asbestos community forum coming to Young

NSW Fair Trading is holding a community forum about loose-fill asbestos insulation. If your home was built before the 1980s, it could be affected by hazardous loose-fill asbestos insulation. Loose-fill asbestos is raw crushed asbestos, which in the 1960s and 70s, was installed as insulation.

If your home contains loose-fill asbestos insulation, its value in the market will be affected.

There will soon be a legal requirement for loose-fill asbestos to be disclosed in contracts of sale and on planning certificates. The addresses of affected homes will all appear on a public register. This is to ensure that home buyers are protected from unknowingly purchasing an affected property.

NSW Fair Trading will provide financial assistance and support to affected homeowners and tenants.

This community forum is an opportunity to find out more information and how you can register to have your home tested for loose-fill asbestos.
