What Are a Landlord’s Legal Responsibilities to New Tenants Regarding Lead in Rental Property?

This question is about Lead Based Paint Disclosure Form


Under the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act (Title X), before signing a lease or rental agreement, a landlord must disclose any known lead-based paint or lead-based hazards on the property. Both the landlord and tenant must sign an EPA-approved disclosure to verify that the landlord told the tenants about any known lead on the premises. Property owners must keep this disclosure form as part of their records for three years.
