Concrete floor, asbestos what to do?

I was planning to lay tile soon but have asbestos vinyl and tile in the house I am buying. Should I personally remove it? Tile over it? Is there any product that I can lay over it that is cost effective? Saw Tavy products but have no idea how much 1400sq ft of material/glue would cost. Or if it would last. Haven't heard much on it. I don't want tiles popping up in six months and don't have the cash for a pro to pull the asbestos out. I am in a pretty bad spot. Someone has to have a brainstorm for this.

If you keep the area damp, the asbestos doesn't get airborne, you can scrape the tile off of the concrete. Get it all bagged while it is still damp. Did you have the stuff tested? Not all tile and adhesives had asbestos in it way back when.
