ABOUT LEAD PAINT
use and manufacture of lead-based paint was outlawed in the United
States in 1978. While reports of the hazards of lead contained in
paint had been circulated for many years prior to that and the use
of lead-based paint had therefore become less and less widespread,
buildings constructed prior to 1978 have the possibility that lead-based
paint may have been used during their construction or renovation.
The federal Environmental Protection Agency therefore requires that
for all sales or rentals within buildings constructed prior to 1978,
information and disclosures about the hazards and possible presence
of lead-based paint be provided to the buyer/tenant prior to closing
the sale or lease.
In compliance with federal law, the following pamphlet is being
provided here for your information and a disclosure statement will
be given to you, signed by your prospective seller or landlord,
declaring whether they have any knowledge of or have tested for
