I recently renewed my asbestos certification with the EPA (NJ doesn’t have their own program) only to find my insurance won’t cover asbestos testing. It sounds like most home inspector policies will not cover it. Is there any way to get get insurance for this and lead testing? I haven’t gotten my lead cert yet but now I think I should hold off until I can confirm I can get insurance.
For reference I was a building inspector and project manager of hazardous materials for 15 years prior to becoming a home inspector. I mostly worked for engineering or environmental firms on large commercial projects, so I have a lot of experience. I was hoping to supplement the slow times (like now!) with my former area of expertise and already have begun lining up potential jobs so hopefully I can find insurance to make this work.
