    Hi Ralph, have you tried contacting your landlord about it? I’m pretty sure that if you were willing to pay for a licensed asbestos removal contractor and paid for it yourself that your landlord would probably jump at the chance. Talk to your landlord, make it as easy for them as possible, link to the licensed firm you have obtained a quote from so they can easily check out the firm and their liability insurance provision. I imagine that if they have disclosed the presence of asbestos to insurers that it limits your landlord’s options for property owners insurance and property owners liability specifically. If you pay to remove it you would probably be doing them a favour since it might even reduce their insurance premiums slightly. Others on here might have an alternative solution maybe, but Asbestos is nasty stuff, it’s best not to disturb it in an way just in case.
