Somerville is located in Middlesex country just a few miles north of the city of Boston. With a population of 75,754 people located in just 4 square miles, Somerville is the most densely populated community in New England. First established as a town in 1842, Somerville is rich in history with parts of modern-day Somerville playing critical roles in the American Revolution. But with rich history also comes an array of old buildings which make up the town.
One of the commonly addressed issues by tenants and landlords in Somerville has to do with asbestos. Asbestos is often found in homes that were built prior to 1980. In the past asbestos was widely used in everyday products including building material and fire protective gear. It is now known that exposure to asbestos can be extremely dangerous leading to many harmful diseases, such as mesothelioma, cancer, and other lung-related illnesses.
If a tenant suspects asbestos the Health Division of Somerville MA will inspect the property to make a determination. In the case of presence of asbestos, the landlord must hire a licensed asbestos removal company to remove repair or encapsulate the asbestos.
