QUESTION: What is the lead law?

ANSWER: The Lead Law requires the deleading of lead hazards that exist in homes built before 1978 where children under six live. Owners are responsible for complying with the Lead Law and paying the costs to delead.

QUESTION: How does an owner comply with the lead law?

ANSWER: Owners must have all lead hazards corrected by hiring a licensed lead inspector who will test the home and record all of the lead hazards in a Lead Inspection Report. Once the homeowner has the Lead Report available, they must hire a licensed Deleading Contractor like A&S Construction and Demo to abate the hazards. Once complete, the inspector must return to re-inspect the apartment or home and provide the property    owner with a report stating the lead based paint hazards have been abated.
