As a seller and lessor, what if I'm selling target housing?
Property owners who sell target housing must:
- Disclose all known lead-based paint and lead-based paint hazards in the housing and any available reports on lead in the housing;
- Give buyers the EPA pamphlet "Protect Your Family from Lead in Your Home";
- Include certain warning language in the contract as well as signed statements from all parties verifying that all requirements were completed;
- Retain signed acknowledgments for three years, as proof of compliance; and
- Give buyers a 10-day opportunity to test the housing for lead.
