Throughout the United States, and especially in the New England area, the exposure to lead paint is a serious public health concern because much of the housing was built before 1978. Infants, young children, and pregnant women are especially vulnerable to lead paint exposure, which can cause many developmental and impairment issues.
When properly maintained and managed, lead-based paint poses little risk. The Lead Disclosure Rule was put into effect by HUD in 1992 to protect buyers and renters from potentially harmful lead-based paints that may exist in the property.
When proper Lead Disclosure practices are implemented and consistently followed, property owners and real estate professionals can be confident they are in compliance of the federal Lead Disclosure Rule. Individuals who buy and/or rent from you can be assured they are protected from unknown exposure to lead from paint, dust, and soil.
Property managers, sellers, and landlords are subject to large EPA fines and penalties for violations of lead paint disclosure rules. Global Green supplies the necessary documentation and information to keep everyone compliant and within the law.
