I am looking to buy a home and have found what would be the perfect one if it weren't for one thing - asbestos. In the disclosure it states that the pipes are enclosed in asbestos? It also says that the asbestos is cotained. If I choose to buy the house (which is in Connecticut), should I have the asbestos removed? It would eventually have to be done anyway, right? And how much would that cost? Would I be able to ask for a price reduction on the house? Also, it is a very old house. Would the removal be destructive to the home? Please advise.

The two ways of dealing appropriately with asbestos are removal and encapsulationj. It sounds like yours has been encapsulated, based on you wording - contained. A house inspector can tell you this for sure, and much more about this potential investment

Excellence is its own reward!
