Newsflash: Opinions wanted: Considering purchasing a house with vermiculite insulation in the attic that may contain asbestos. [cross-post with some other subreddits]

My understanding is it’s fine if it’s not disturbed, though I don’t know if this effectively renders the attic unusable.Anyone else been in a similar situation, and if so, what did you do?
