The asbestos diagnosis, is mandatory to finalize a sale project so as to meet its obligations as an owner-lessor.

Housing that was designed before July 1997 very often contains asbestos materials and products. Fiber cement elements, false ceilings, certain coatings, joints and other ducts may incorporate asbestos in their composition.

When the degradation is due to poor maintenance or obsolescence, these elements release toxic fibers, polluting the indoor air and contributing to the emergence of potentially serious diseases.

Asbestos is one of the factors that considerably increases the risk of contracting lung cancer and developing pulmonary fibrosis. The mandatory diagnosis before a sale inform the new owner about the risks present in any property prior to July 1997.

The control must be organized by the seller, with a qualified real estate diagnostician, who lists all the elements at risk and presents solutions to improve safety in the home.

The asbestos statement is a mandatory document, to be submitted before signing a contract.

Asbestos diagnosis in the context of rentals

Some owner-lessors are required to have a report on asbestos in their property. This is the case for all those who rent accommodation in a condominium prior to July 1997.

The expected document is called the “asbestos file for private areas” (in french, DAPP) in reference to the object of the identification and its location.

Like the pre-sale asbestos report, the DAPP (“asbestos file for private areas”) provides information on genuine and potentially dangerous materials and products, and indicates the means to be implemented to protect against the harmful effects of asbestos.

In all cases, an asbestos report must be necessarily available to tenants of housing designed before July 1997 who request it.
