Asbestos could be anywhere in your property
Before the ban on asbestos came into effect in 2003, this harmful material was extensively used in commercial, public, and residential buildings in Australia. In Newcastle, asbestos can still be found in many different products including thermal insulation, fireproofing, electrical insulation, and building materials. Some residential and industrial buildings were either renovated or built using commercial products that contain asbestos materials. In fact, these products were still being used in Newcastle until the late 1990s.
Asbestos threat on property’s value
The disclosure of asbestos-containing material within a property should become mandatory, according to one of NSW’s peak real estate bodies. The Real Estate Institute of New South Wales (REINSW) proposed that the state government should have a special task force to develop a statewide plan for the management and removal of asbestos in NSW. This would include requiring property owners or real estate agents to disclose to any potential buyers whether a property contains asbestos materials or not.
If you intend to sell a property built before the 1990s, it is likely that it will contain asbestos. It is difficult to tell whether a material is asbestos or not just by looking at it. It is something that only asbestos testing can do. A thorough analysis by a licensed assessor can identify potential asbestos-containing material within your property.

3 main reasons why you need to seek help from a licensed professional to perform asbestos testing:
Reason #1: asbestos material was widely used in NSW
More than 2500 products containing asbestos were used in construction, including:
- Drywall compounds and textured ceilings used on ceiling and wall joints
- Insulation between 1930 and 1950.
- Artificial embers and ashes sold for use in fireplaces may contain asbestos.
- Floors and walls around wood burning stoves may be protected with asbestos paper, cement sheets, or millboard.
- Vinyl floor tiles and adhesives may contain asbestos.
- Steam and hot water pipes in older residential buildings may be coated with an asbestos material or coated with an asbestos tape.
- Fencing products.
- Coal and oil furnaces and gaskets may have asbestos insulation.
Reason #2: Asbestos can diminish property’s value
Studies reveal that the presence of asbestos affects property’s value. The market value of a property with asbestos is 10-30% lower than a comparable property that is free from asbestos materials. Here are more interesting findings:
- On average, it takes 8 months longer to sell a property with asbestos-containing material than a property without that material.
- Rental properties that have asbestos-containing material take 4.88 months longer to be filled than a rental property without the material.
- The rental rates for properties with asbestos-containing materials are comparably lower than properties without the material; retail buildings (8-10%), industrial buildings (6-10%), office buildings (11-12%).
- The operating expenses for properties with asbestos are comparably higher than properties without asbestos; retail properties (5-7%), industrial properties (3-4%), office properties (7-8%).
