An asbestos removal contractor and a property management company agreed to pay air-quality regulators $430,000 to settle claims they improperly removed asbestos from San Francisco Bay Area buildings.

The fines were the largest asbestos reporting and removal penalties the Bay Area Air Quality Management District has levied, the agency said Tuesday.

USA Properties Fund Inc. and USA Multifamily Management Inc. agreed to pay $300,000 on allegations it used unqualified workers to remove asbestos from the ceiling of a Concord apartment complex.
