      There really is no asbestos inspection typically. Most buildings require an occupancy inspection and if there was a big issue one would hope the inspector would mention something. Beyond that, there is generally no outlet for such an inspection. If you have a concern, I would talk to your landlord. If it is something bad, maybe an attorney.
