When you are planning to sell a property, you are advised to make sure that is has no, or at least identified, asbestos within. Even though the use of asbestos has been phased out since 1990 and was banned entirely in 2003, most Australian properties built before 1987 are highly likely to contain asbestos.
Furthermore, based on research, the presence of asbestos materials may significantly decrease your property’s value. The decrease of property value with asbestos could be as high as 10-30% under average properties without asbestos. Moreover, it takes more time to sell properties with asbestos than other comparable properties without it.

Asbestos: history and uses
Unquenchable or inextinguishable was the meaning of the word that is now known as asbestos. At first, its’ ability to resist heat, made this material suitable for making pots and other cooking utensils. Asbestos materials have been used for more than 4000 years, where the first evidence of their use was found near the Juojärvi Lake, Finland. While in Egypt, an asbestos cloth was made to wrap embalmed bodies of Egyptian pharaohs to protect the bodies from deterioration.
The productions of this harmful material had grown worldwide by the early 1900s. Germany issued the first patent of asbestos cement sheets in 1899. Austria followed by developing high-pressure asbestos gaskets in 1900. And Italy made its’ first asbestos pipes in 1913. The development of asbestos materials grew rapidly until an Austrian doctor found one of his patients suffered pulmonary troubles due to asbestos inhalation in the late 1900s.
Australia has banned the use of all types of asbestos on 31 December 2003. However, there are still plenty of asbestos products widely used in Australian properties due to the past popularity of this material. This harmful substance was usually mixed with other materials, such as cement, to produce a better quality product. You can find asbestos products everywhere; including in piping, roofing, sheet flooring and even behind your walls.
