Indoor Environmental Concerns - Lead Poisoning
This rule is intended to protect the public from exposure to lead from paint, dust and soil. In 1992, the U.S. Congress passed Title X, also known as the Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act. Under Section 1018 of this law, HUD and the EPA require disclosure on lead-based paint and paint hazards before the sale or lease of most housing built before 1978. This rule is to help protect families who are living in housing that may have lead-based paint on the interior or exterior.
