In reply to On Asbestos Laws ... by Jay J on September 2nd, 1999 08:56 AM [Go to top of thread]

Thanks for all the advice.
The disclosure law is the exact reason why we would like to remove this tile now, while we can. One question of course is, why wasn't it disclosed to us when we bought the house in May. I think the previous owners have an "out" because the tile was under carpet, and they might not have known it was there. Because we are honest people, we would definately disclose this information when we sell the house. The problem then would be other people's ignorance about asbestos, and we would rather not have to deal with it.
I'm pretty sure that the laws in my area allow for the disposal of hazerdous material if it's done in small quantities. I don't know for sure, so I will anonymously call to ask.
As far as the removal goes, do you have any ideas of products that would help "loosen" this glue?
Thanks again for all the help.
