Lead Disclosure…It’s the Law
Take the fear out of lead disclosure by knowing what the law requires of you. If you’re a building owner, landlord, or property manager of a pre-1978 home or apartment, you must provide buyers or renters with the proper lead disclosure documentation.
The Federal Lead Disclosure Rule requires building owners, landlords, and property managers to provide the buyer or renter of a pre-1978 home or apartment with a properly executed Lead Disclosure document about the hazards of lead-based paint.
The Lead Disclosure Rule gives families and individuals the information necessary to reduce the risk of exposure to lead-based paint and its hazards.
A property owner, or their representative, who leases pre-1978 housing, including apartments, condominiums, or multi-family housing, must offer all the required forms to every buyer and renter before signing a contract. Non-compliance is subject to civil penalties and fines of $11,000 per violation.
Before a purchaser or renter comes under contract to buy or lease, these federal and state requirements must be met:
- Provide purchasers and renters with an EPA-approved lead hazard information pamphlet, yours for free from Global Green.
- Disclose the presence of any known lead-based paint and/or lead-based paint hazards to the purchasers and lessees.
- Provide purchasers and renters with any available records or reports pertaining to the presence of lead-based paint and/or lead-based paint hazards in the housing.
- Records must be kept for three years.
