Are Any Lead Disclosures Required Before a Landlord Renovates Rental Property?

If a landlord renovates an occupied rental unit or common area in a building constructed before 1978, EPA requires that current tenants receive lead-based paint and lead hazard information within sixty days of the date the renovation begins. EPA defines a renovation as any change that disturbs painted surfaces, with some exceptions.

If the renovation is taking place in an occupied rental unit, the renovator must give the unit tenant(s) a copy of the EPA pamphlet “Protect Your Family From Lead in Your Home”.

If the renovation is taking place in a common area, the renovator must provide notice to each rental unit in the building, detailing the renovation work and the dates work is expected to start and end.
