    What should realtors do?
    Notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$post_date in /var/www/webapp/ui/mlb_faq.php on line 96

    Realtors must be as informed as possible in order to protect themselves and their clients from the restrictions and added costs that may result from the presence of vermiculite insulation. A listing agent should remember that vermiculite insulation is not a banned substance, nor is it a latent defect, and therefore may not have to be disclosed by the seller. However, disclosure at the beginning may be the best shield against potential liability. As a purchaser?s agent, if there is a particular concern regarding vermiculite insulation on the part of the purchaser, you might consider adding a representation to the offer to purchase warranting the property is not insulated with it. And, of course, realtors should recommend to buyers that they make their offers subject to a home inspection.
