What If Your Tenant Believes the Rental Is No Longer Habitable due to Asbestos?

If your tenant believes that the rental is no longer habitable due to asbestos, then they may seek to terminate the lease early. They could also pay you partial rent, withhold all the rent, request temporary housing, or file a lawsuit in small claims court. If your tenant ever gives you notice regarding asbestos, you will want to make sure you take action and document your action as soon as possible.

Tellus TIP:

Take timely and proper action to fix any asbestos problems.
