Lead Based Paint Disclosure-What, When and How

Some residential housing units built before 1978 contained lead based paint which, after being found to be a potential health hazard to the occupants, was outlawed in 1978. As a result, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)requires home owners that are selling their homes,condos, villas or other residential unit that was built before 1978, as well as landlords renting out a residential unit built before 1978, to make certain disclosures to the buyer/tenant. Failure to comply with these disclosure requirements can not only create a potential health risk for the new home owner or tenant, but can also subject the property owner to rather large fines.
