Lead Base Paint was banned by the Federal Government in 1978. Some states actually banned it sooner. If a Property Owner sells or rents a home that was built prior to 1978, they must complete a Lead Base Disclosure Form disclosing whether they have any knowledge or reports of Lead Base Paint in their home/buildings. The Buyer/Tenant will be required to review and acknowledge in writing the receipt of this document and the receipt of the booklet, “Protect Your Family From Lead Base in Your Home”. Even though the Owner has no knowledge or reports of Lead Base Paint doesn’t mean that it does not exist in the house/buildings. Buyer Beware! Educate yourself on Lead Base Paint. There are Inspectors that are certified to inspect for Lead Base Paint. If the house you want to Purchase/Lease was built prior to 1978 visit the EPA’s website and get educated on LEAD BASE PAINT. You may want to consider including a Lead Base Paint Inspection before you purchase. Read more about Lead Base Paint from the EPA’s site. Click on the link below!
