Do you own a house in NSW that was built before 1980?

If so, it may be affected by loose-fill asbestos which could mean you are unable to sell or rent your home or investment property in the future.

Loose-fill asbestos was commonly used in the 1960’s and 70’s as a form of insulation.

Asbestos is a hazardous material and the NSW government is considering options to protect the community from unknowingly buying houses that contain this loose-fill insulation. Options being considered include:

  • when selling a property, you would be obliged to confirm in the contract of sale if the property contains or is free of loose-fill asbestos; and
  • a prescribed warning notice would be included in all contracts of sale to alert potential buyers of the risk of loose-fill asbestos in pre-1980s homes.
