Is there an Alabama law pertaining to notification of asbestos in a dwelling being sold?

To protect buyers, sellers are required to reveal certain disclosures about the dwelling being sold. Most state laws require sellers to make disclosures about toxic materials including radon, mercury, asbestos, carbon monoxide and formaldehyde. Many sales agreements mention asbestos by saying “the buyer is aware asbestos may be used in the construction of this home.” You should consult with a local attorney in Alabama to find out what specific disclosures about asbestos you must state in your property sale agreement (if applicable).
