The damaging effects of asbestos are well-known, and any materials containing asbestos is no longer used in the construction of residential and commercial properties.
Asbestos was widely used up until 1981 and present in many older residential properties across the US. When a tenant is renting a residential unit in a building dating from this period, the landlord is required by law to disclose the presence of asbestos, and the proper way to do this is with an Asbestos Addendum to Lease (Residential).
An Asbestos Addendum to Lease is only required for residential rental properties. You can incorporate it into the existing lease agreement between the landlord and the tenant.
The landlord is required by law to disclose any knowledge about the presence of asbestos in the building. According to federal law, landlords are required to have any rental property constructed before 1981 inspected for asbestos. In California, this moved back two years before 1979.
