Lead Information

Creating lead-safe environments for residents in our area is critically important. The Housing Council at PathStone provides information and resources for landlords.

Landlords are responsible for:

  • Making sure that families are moving into a lead-safe home

  • Providing tenants with a copy of the US EPA Renovate Right pamphlet

  • Making sure that qualified, lead-safe professionals do renovation and repair work

  • Ensuring that properties are maintained according to local codes

  • Ensuring that paint is in good condition, inside the home and out

Download the new EPA Lead Pamphlet and Disclosure Form for contractors and landlords that will be performing repairs, renovations, or remodeling in housing units built before 1978. (Effective Date: December 22, 2008)

After April 2010, new federal laws require contractors to become EPA Lead Certified Renovators. The new Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (LRRP) rule affects anyone who is paid to perform work that disturbs paint in housing and child-occupied facilities built before 1978. This includes:

  • Residential rental property owners/managers

  • General contractors

  • Maintenance personnel and trade contractors, including HVAC, painters, plumbers, carpenters, and electricians
