Question (23002-18347) 

If a property is tested by a certified renovator, inspector, or risk assessor and found to be free of lead-based paint, does any testing need to be done again if work is done on the property several years later?

Answer

Where a certified renovator uses an EPA-approved test kit or performs paint chip sampling to determine that a component is free of lead-based paint, or a lead-based paint free determination is made by a certified inspector or risk assessor, firms performing renovations on the same components may rely on these results as long as the records are still available.  Lead-based paint free determinations by a certified inspector or risk assessor are valid for both the tenant disclosure exemption from 1018 and the RRP Rule and they do not expire.
