Any pre-1978 home that is on the market, potential home buyers
need to know about Lead paint presence, condition, and potential
hazards of the home they are interested in.
There is a ten day window for any buyer to have Property tested
for Lead before being purchased.
If you are dealing with any property that is Federally funded you
must comply with all HUD and EPA requirements.
As a Property Manager you must disclose to tenants before they
move in of any potential Lead hazards and have them sign a
disclosure that they have been informed.
If you, your staff or any hired contractors are doing any Repairs,
Remodeling or Painting (RRP) you must follow all of the EPA RRP
rules and work Lead safe. These include notifications to all tenants
including disclosure signatures, sealed work areas, and clearance
If you live in a home older then 1978, having your home tested
can help offer peace of mind.
Contamination from the previous owners could still be present in
the flooring or the soil.
If you are purchasing a new home and it was built before 1978
it is a good idea to have The Lead Detective Agency pre-check
the property for lead hazards before you purchase or move in.
