What happens if I do not accept the sales offer and want to stay in my property?

Participation in the Loose Fill Asbestos Insulation Eradication Scheme is voluntary. Owners of an affected block remain able (subject to the completion and continuation of mandatory Asbestos Management Plans) to:

  • live in the house
  • sell the house provided its affected status is disclosed
  • lease the house provided its affected status is disclosed
  • demolish the house privately

More information is available on Asbestos Management Plans.
